E7: Leadership for a Higher Purpose

In this episode, Dan talks to Stacey Stewart, president of March of Dimes, about the ideals and values leaders in civil society should uphold despite – and sometimes because of – the negative and divisive political climate we live in. Dan and Stacey also discuss Robert Boisture’s piece in the Stanford Social Innovation Review, “Civic Virtues and the Healing of Partisan Divides,” and Stacey calls on civil society’s leaders to acknowledge their power and responsibility toward compromise and progress.
