Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, a renowned journalistic team, have traveled the world and lived for many years in Asia, where their work won them the first Pulitzer Prize granted to a husband and wife. In this fireside chat, Nick and Sheryl will consider the human dimension of COVID-19, including the political dimension for countries around the world, in the context of their abiding concern for those less fortunate. Nick and Sheryl never miss the bright hopes of people and the positive examples appearing in the most troubling times like those we’re living through right now.
Their passion for positive solutions has led Nick and Sheryl to important roles in the nonprofit and business worlds, and as joint authors of an exceptional series of books. Their most recent, Tightrope: Americans Reaching for Hope, is an unvarnished look at the personal challenges of the people who rode the bus with Nick as children in rural Oregon, proposing actionable solutions to the challenges facing those on lower rungs of society.
