From Outrage to Courage to Compassion: The Inspirational Vision of Anne Firth Murray
March 25, 2013
Hosted by Kate Ebner
As a girl growing up in the 50’s, young Anne Firth Murray observed that her brother was allowed to do things that were off limits to her because she was a girl. Later, through jobs at the UN and the Hewlett Packard Foundation, Anne observed the many ways that women were treated differently than men despite the quality of their work. Frustrated by traditional philanthropy’s lack of interest in women’s issues, Anne and three other visionary women forged a new path, founding an highly successful organization, the Global Fund for Women, to grant funds directly to women-led organizations – a strategy unheard of in the early 80’s. Join Kate Ebner for a provocative conversation with Anne, Nobel Peace prize nominee and professor at Stanford University, as she shares how her experiences have shaped her vision of an approach that can change the world. Learn about Anne’s astonishing Stanford course, “Love as a Force for Social Justice” -- and be inspired by the wisdom of Anne’s timely message.
