Just as Jacqueline Novogratz’s groundbreaking new book, Manifesto for a Moral Revolution: Practices to Build a Better World, makes its way to readers, an international pandemic has thrown into sharp relief the gaping wounds of our era, from a broken health system to climate change and skyrocketing inequality and growing divisiveness. Our inadequate systems and institutions are slumping beneath a host of modern crises. Most urgently, moral leaders are proving a scarce commodity. In America and across the world, an anxious public is hungry for clear, conscientious guidance. The stakes are higher than ever.
Please join us for a conversation with Jacqueline and Cecile Lipworth about the how we might use this moment of extreme uncertainty to reimagine our institutions and enact a moral revolution – a revolution of character, moral imagination, moral courage, and leadership that acts for the benefit of all of us.
Manifesto for a Moral Revolution: Practices to Build a Better World, a new book by Acumen Founder & CEO and best-selling author Jacqueline Novogratz, reveals what it takes to create change. Drawing on practices of moral leadership, the book addresses the most common hurdles faced by those who want to do good and shares ideas anyone can use to move through challenges successfully.
In the book, Novogratz draws on unforgettable stories from changemakers around the world and wrestles with complex ethical and moral quandaries. Tackling issues ranging from identity and measuring what matters to whether markets will support businesses that reject a profit-alone mentality, Novogratz is a testament to the value of embracing discomfort and holding steadfast to principles. In these pages, she shows how today’s leaders, who often kick off their enterprises with grand ambitions and tight timetables, might navigate the historically challenging obstacles which have stymied prior generations of investors. And for all who feel fearful in the face of our unique, pressing issues, she offers something more: hope.
