Leading with empathy: A conversation with former New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern
November 17th @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm
This live stream has ended. Thank you to those who tuned in.
Good political leadership requires acumen, decisiveness – and empathy. Jacinda Ardern, former prime minister of New Zealand, built her career with empathy at its core. During the 5 ½ years that she led her country, Ardern demonstrated that value repeatedly, from her successful approach to protecting lives during the pandemic to her quick action to strengthen gun control following attacks on mosques. Now a fellow at Harvard and a role model to many, Ardern will reflect on what it’s like to make hard but compassionate policy choices under a global spotlight.
