3 Prize Laureates join journalist Perri Peltz to discuss 'the moral imperative to act.'

KC Hardin, Nicola Galombik, and Dele Olojede share their stories of using their professional skills to address the world's toughest problems.

To those whom much is given, much is asked. All three of these McNulty Prize Laureates—KC Hardin, Nicola Galombik, and Dele Olojede—could have enjoyed their successful careers as real estate developer, investment company executive, and journalist, respectively. Instead, they chose to pivot to re-orienting their lives and professional trajectories to addressing urgent social needs using their private-sector skills. KC turns gang leaders into entrepreneurs, Nicola is placing thousands of young, underserved South Africans into full-time jobs, and Dele Olojede went toe-to-toe with one of the most corrupt governments in Africa. Documentarian Perri Peltz interviews these three about how they realized they needed to use their opportunity to expand opportunities for others, and the challenges that almost held them back.
