In 2015, Opus hosted Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, two Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, to recount astonishing stories revealing the compelling, inspiring truth of how real people have changed the world and underscoring that one person can make a difference.
Opus was pleased to host authors and journalists Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn on campus on Monday, September 21, 2015, for a free, public event.
Nicholas Kristof is a New York Times columnist bringing attention to global human rights and women's issues. Sheryl WuDunn is the first Asian American to win the Pulitzer Prize. She is a business executive working in investment banking serving the needs of growth companies in emerging markets. The two are married, and together they received the Pulitzer Prize for their reporting on the Tiananmen Square Democracy Movement. They are coauthors of the book Half The Sky: Oppression to Opportunity for Women Worldwide and have recently published a follow up A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity.
This event was co-presented by Opus: The Art of Work, the Center for Applied Christian Ethics, the Department of Politics and International Relations, the Tiffany Memorial Fund, and the Gender Studies Program.
