Join NEID virtually in conversation with Acumen founder and CEO Jacqueline Novogratz and Bina Venkataraman of the Boston Globe as Jacqueline shares insight into her new book Manifesto for a Moral Revolution and reflects on the 12 essential leadership principles for the 21st century. Most of us want our lives to count for something. And many are eager to join the fight against climate catastrophe, poverty, injustice or corruption. But how? Jacqueline Novogratz reveals what it takes in her latest book, Manifesto for a Moral Revolution.

Drawing on stories from inspiring, responsible change-makers around the world, and including memories of Novogratz’s own most difficult challenges, Manifesto for a Moral Revolution addresses the most common hurdles faced by those who want to do good—and shares ideas anyone can use to successfully move through those challenges.

She has been named one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy, one of the 25 Smartest People of the Decade by the Daily Beast, and one of the World’s 100 Greatest Living Business Minds by Forbes, which also honored her with the Forbes 400 Lifetime Achievement Award for Social Entrepreneurship. She is a sought-after speaker and sits on a number of philanthropic boards.
