A Series of Leadership Case Studies

Over the last ten years, the McNulty Prize has elevated the stories of individuals who bring their skills and spirit to bear on critical problems that others have failed to solve, or even attempt. Working across diverse sectors and geographies, these individuals share an entrepreneurial spirit, resilience, resourcefulness, curiosity and expertise that is rooted in local experience. Many McNulty Prize Laureates have moved from private success to greater significance, leveraging their unique position to pioneer solutions to global challenges.

In recognition of the central role their leadership played in effecting change and enabling millions to take control of their futures, we offer this series of leadership case studies. We hope they will inspire and support others as they seek to make an impact, and as they use their leadership and resources to create opportunities for others.

We invite you to read the leadership cases below, explore the pivotal moments that catalyzed Laureates into action, and hear their stories of struggle, determination and ultimately success.
