The NYU Reynolds Program in Social Entrepreneurship (www.nyu.edu/reynolds) is
pleased to present the first half of the 2010-11 Social Entrepreneurship in the
21st Century Speaker Series. Join us on October 13 at 6:30pm for a conversation
between senior political analyst and four-time presidential advisor David Gergen
and leading entrepreneur and philanthropist Catherine B. Reynolds. The
conversation will be moderated by Paul Light, NYU Wagner’s Goddard Professor of
Public Service. The event takes place at the Paulson Auditorium, Tisch Hall,
NYU Stern, 40 West 4th Street, New York NY. The event is free and open to the
public, but space is limited and an RSVP is required by clicking here or by

A White House adviser, journalist, and teacher over the past 40 years, David
Gergen has served in the administrations of Presidents Nixon and Ford; was
director of communications for President Reagan, and served as counselor to
President Clinton on both foreign policy and domestic affairs. He is a
professor of public service at the Harvard Kennedy School, and the director of
its Center for Public Leadership.
Mrs. Reynolds has played a pivotal role in creating the private student loan
market that today provides affordable financing for millions of students to
attend college. She is also a leader in the world of philanthropy. In March
2000, the Catherine B. Reynolds Foundation was established as one of the largest
foundations in the nation. She was named by Business Week magazine as one of
the 50 most philanthropic living Americans, and the first self-made woman to
make that list. This year, Mrs. Reynolds’ efforts on behalf of higher education
have been recognized by honorary degrees from Morehouse College and Willamette
University, and the presentation of a gold medal on the occasion of her
induction as a member of The Sir Harold Acton Society of New York University.
Now in its fifth year, the Social Entrepreneurship in the 21st Century Speaker
Series features a remarkable selection of social entrepreneurs and related
leaders who have launched extraordinary programs, companies and movements
addressing the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. Reflecting the NYU
Reynolds belief that social entrepreneurship is a meta-profession drawing on
cross-disciplinary knowledge and practice, the series presents prominent social
entrepreneurs and leaders from across the spectrum of public and professional
sectors who will share their insights as cutting-edge, far reaching change makers.
Other speakers for this semester include Kickstart Co-founder Martin Fisher and
Linda Rottenberg, CEO and Co-founder of Endeavor. Additional speakers to be
scheduled throughout the year.
