Global Citizenship for Human Development: A Conversation with Muhammad Yunus


The Ford Family Award will recognize Nobel Peace Prize laureate and social business pioneer Muhammad Yunus with the Ford Family Notre Dame Award for International Development and Solidarity for his lifelong contributions toward ending poverty, from his groundbreaking innovations in microcredit to his more recent work on human development focused on social entrepreneurship and sustainability.

Following the award presentation, Yunus will discuss his pioneering work in the fields of poverty alleviation and sustainability in an armchair discussion with Kellogg Advisory Board member and Faculty Fellow Ray Offenheiser. The event is part of the 2017–18 Notre Dame Forum, a series that explores the challenges and opportunities posed by globalization.  Both the ceremony and the talk are free and open to the public.
