Pivotal Moments — A Series of Leadership Case Studies

Pivotal-Moments-Case-Studies_180815_165530.JPG#asset:1565Over the last fifteen years, the McNulty Prize has elevated the stories of individuals who bring their skills and spirit to bear on critical global problems.

Working across diverse sectors and geographies, these individuals share an entrepreneurial spirit, resilience and expertise that is rooted in local experience, and have leveraged their unique position to pioneer solutions to intractable challenges.

In recognition of the central role their leadership played in effecting change, we offer this series of leadership case studies. We hope they will inspire others as they seek to make an impact, and as they use their leadership to drive forward social change.

Read the leadership cases below, explore the pivotal moments that catalyzed Laureates into action, and hear their stories of struggle, determination, and ultimately success.
