Bill Drayton on Empathy and Collaborative Entrepreneurship

By pooling together hundreds of entrepreneurs (and their passion, innovation, and zeal) who are working on issues pertaining to young people and children, Drayton hopes to give rise to a more empathetic generation, one that understands that we’re part of a team, not a hierarchy of institutions. For Drayton, empathy is at the root of social change, a value that will enable everyone to become a changemaker.
