Challenging Unequal Systems: Rapid-Fire Dialogue with 2023 McNulty Prize Catalyst Fund Awardees

Join leaders in climate, health, and racial equity as they share lessons from leading on the ground.

So many of our most pressing, systemic issues are exacerbated by, or entirely rooted in, inequity. How can those leading solutions challenge the unequal systems in the groundwater of key issues like climate change, good education, and accessible health care? What can those leading efforts draw from their personal experiences to create viable solutions? What does it really take to make change at the community, national, and international levels? 

On Tuesday, March 28 from 11am-12:15pm ET, join a series of rapid fire conversations between five leaders — all awardees of the McNulty Prize Catalyst Fund and Fellows of the Aspen Global Leadership Network — tackling distinct systemic challenges inspired by their personal experiences with the issues. 

From understanding how important Black History is to American education and the well-being of Black students; to the revolutionary potential of healthcare digitization in India; to the urgent need for new relationships between neighborhoods and police; to designing a system that incentivizes a focus on service and equity in medical school; to engaging communities on how they can reclaim public space while cleaning their water and air with micro-forests; the Fellows leading these organizations all seek to address deep-rooted challenges that perpetuate inequities in society. 

We invite you to learn from their insights informed by leading early-stage organizations, including how they weave their personal experiences into their actions.
