Ask an Expert with Jacqueline Novogratz

What does it mean to listen to people whose voices have traditionally been ignored? How can leaders become better listeners? What is the importance of inclusion and representation, specifically in positions of leadership?

In our latest Ask an Expert series, our CEO, Per Heggenes was in a conversation with Jacqueline Novogratz, founder and CEO of Acumen, about some of these questions and how we can all practice leadership in times of uncertainty. They also discussed her recently published book Manifesto for a Moral Revolution.

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.

Acumen Academy is offering a course on leadership by Jacqueline Novogratz. You can read more about it here.
