Jed Emerson: The Blended Value Proposition

Jed Emerson: The Blended Value Proposition
Jed Emerson is a social entrepreneur, a funder and investor and a critical observer of the field. His area of exploration is the Blended Value Proposition, focusing on advancing frameworks for assessing and tracking the value generated by social and cultural capital.

"The thing that is striking is what we are really witnessing, I think, is the coming together of different schools," says Emerson. "You got folks who are historically in the non-profit sector who are increasingly taking business acumens, skills, and frameworks and applying them toward community ends."

Social Entrepreneur Series: Bill Drayton

Social Entrepreneur Series: Bill Drayton
With the creation in 1981 of Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, Bill Drayton put forward the notion that the individual person driving the change is worth supporting, rather than the organization itself. He contends that the most powerful force is a big idea in the right hands: those of an entrepreneur who is not only going to make the idea happen, but spread it across society. Drayton shares his belief that the need for entrepreneurship is just as strong in areas such as education and health as that of hotels and steel.

Karen Armstrong: The Mystery of Compassion

Karen Armstrong: The Mystery of Compassion
Karen Armstrong is a British author of numerous works on comparative religion, who first rose to prominence in 1993 with her highly successful A History of God. A former Catholic nun, she asserts that, "All the great traditions are saying the same thing in much the same way, despite their surface differences." They each have in common, she says, an emphasis on the transcendent importance of compassion, as epitomized in the so-called Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

Awarded the $100,000 TED Prize in February 2008, she called for drawing up a Charter for Compassion in the spirit of the Golden Rule, to identify shared moral priorities across religious traditions, in order to foster global understanding. It was unveiled in Washington, D.C. in November 2009. Signatories include Prince Hassan of Jordan, the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and Sir Richard Branson.
