Bryan Stevenson has been called one of World’s Greatest Leaders. He is committed to defending the poor and wrongly condemned, and has galvanized a movement to re-examine the roots of mass incarceration in America. His work in justice is fueled out of his willingness to get close to difficult problems and to do uncomfortable things. We are thrilled to welcome and learn from him at the Global Leadership Summit in 2017.
In this 3½-minute video, Bryan tells the story of how one inmate’s experience changed his leadership.
