Join Independent Sector at the John W. Gardner Leadership Awards Luncheon. We’ll honor the change-making spirit of our founding chair, John W. Gardner, as we celebrate the transformative leadership of Michael Brown, co-founder and CEO of City Year, with our 2015 John W. Gardner Leadership Award. Brown will be honored for his leadership in the national service movement, his commitment to education and social justice, and his belief in the potential of every young person. His leadership in the movement has been most powerfully evidenced by his co-founding and leadership of City Year, a national service education organization whose dedicated corps members serve full-time for a year in schools in high-poverty communities.
During the awards luncheon, we will also honor United We Dream’s Julieta Garibay with the 2015 American Express NGen Leadership Award for her work addressing inequality and barriers to opportunity for immigrant youth.
