Special Podcast Episode with former Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell and Danny Meyer

Wednesday, September 19, 2018


“Genius knows no language, no race, no religion and can be found wherever there are human beings but it tends to flourish where there is freedom, opportunity, where anybody can rise despite their background, and that’s really America, a place of innovation, and that’s what we need.”  – Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell

“Investing in people and places and organizations that can lift the whole… that’s how I define community,”  – Danny Meyer

You can probably tell that I tend to enjoy all of the podcast episodes we’ve had the privilege to record. But this one is among those of which I am most proud.  In a compelling example of what principled leadership looks and sounds like, former Senator George Mitchell and our board colleague Danny Meyer take on the political dysfunction that has divided our nation, immigration, community building, poverty, and early childhood investments, among other topics relevant to what we work on every day.  I hope you’ll have the chance to listen on our website and on iTunes
