The Case for Moral Leadership 

Published on LinkedIn in April 2017 

I led a media and marketing LinkedIn partnership, including an in-person interview at the LinkedIn Headquarters in New York with the Founder/CEO of Acumen, Jacqueline Novogratz. 

“Moral leadership requires listening from a place of inquiry, not certainty. It understands that our individual and collective identities are complex and multi-layered. And so we have to take time to know each other, not make easy assumptions and characterize others by a single slice of their identities. To live that way requires a moral compass. It means moving from a place of moral imagination, understanding that empathy is essential but it is not enough. We need moral imagination to find the patience and kindness to know one another; and we need it to begin to dream of new systems that can hold us all.”
