As the world mourns the loss of a tremendous leader, it’s important to realize that we all have the capacity for this type of leadership wherever we work. Philanthropy is uniquely positioned to inspire the type of transformational change Nelson Mandela personified. The work that we do can be a direct legacy of his contribution. We can all be, in our own way, a part of the “arc bending toward justice.”
The tears I shed now are part and parcel of those I shed the day I watched Madiba walk out of Victor Verster Prison. They reflect profound gratitude to have been a part of that struggle and a deep recognition of the responsibility of what it means to further it today.
