"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." I believe deeply in its transformative power - and also that the entire system needs to be reworked for a new generation and the current industrial, political and social landscapes around the US and around the globe. That is precisely why I was hugely honored and tremendously excited to teach a Master Course for the mover-shakers at Watson University! Watson University is a new model for higher education that launches and accelerates the ideas of student innovators, leaders, and entrepreneurs from every corner of earth to develop and advance solutions to the toughest challenges facing our communities and world. And it far exceeded my expectations, in regard to the intellect and engagement level of the students, complexity and practicality of their on-the-ground initiatives, and innovative, effective approach of the university curriculum and school culture itself. Change education, change a generation, change the world. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of this journey. #bethechange #educationiseverything #think
One of the best post-speech moments... a quality mentorship girl power huddle that grew organically from what was supposed to be a one-on-one with me and the students at @Watson_U. Yes, I am *that* happy.
