"Digging where you are means seizing the opportunity right in front of you to make a difference, to make things better, to change bad situations into good."
Meet Nan Alexander Doyal
The Center for the Study of Liberty is delighted to bring you a live interview and discussion with Nan Alexander Doyal.
Nan Alexander Doyal has lived and worked in North America, Europe, and Asia for more than three decades, most recently as President of The International Forum – an organization that designs active learning experiences for the leaders of global corporations. For years she sought out people from all walks of life who are digging where they are - using their skills and local knowledge to spark meaningful and sustainable change for the good in their community.
From the experiences of ordinary people - a heart surgeon in India dedicated to providing affordable healthcare to the poor, a community organizer working to secure housing and basic services in one of the world's largest slums, a compassionate leader building a new vision of criminal rehabilitation - Doyal discovered just how much individuals can accomplish with perseverance, creativity, and patience. She recounts their stories and what she learned in her first book, Dig Where You Are: How One Person’s Effort Can Save a Life, Empower a Community and Create Meaningful Change in the World.
"What will it take for each of us to reclaim the role we are meant to play in our communities and in the world?"
About the Session
"Ideas at Work" are free online sessions offered to the public. No preparation is necessary, and you do not need to have read the book in order to participate.
The session will last for one hour and fifteen minutes, and the Center will facilitate an interview and discussion with our guest via Zoom video chat. Participants will be required to use an online video chat platform in order to recreate the feel of an in-person interview and Q&A. A brief tutorial of the platform will be shared prior to the session.
