New York Times columnist, Nicholas Kristof and his wife, fellow Pulitzer-prize winner, Sheryl WuDunn, will deliver the keynote address at the SVP network conference in Seattle October, 22-24.

Kristof and WuDunn have authored three best-selling books together including Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Their most recent book, A Path Appears: Transforming Lives, Creating Opportunity, with the three part television documentary of the same name, is currently airing in the U.S. on local Public Broadcasting Stations.  A website is dedicated to engaging global citizens to connect, learn and take action for a better world. On Kristof’s Facebook page, he features his New York Times op-ed columns and you can access clips of the documentary series.

Kristof and WuDunn will share their galvanizing narrative about making a difference in the world and offer a road map to becoming the most effective global citizens we can be.  Their stories will come from what they’ve gleaned from people around the world who are using research, evidence-based strategies, and brilliant ideas to make the world a better place – people a lot like SVP partners!
