There is a change coming that is going to impact every workplace you will be part of in the next five years, and neither our education systems nor our workplaces are ready to meet that change. What is this change? It is the quest for building a career, and a life, of purpose. But although we should start with purpose, our sights should really be set on making an impact. On making a difference while also making a living. But making a difference is hard - and we need to learn how to do it.
A former cricket journalist (and failed cricket player), Roshan has spent his life questioning the status quo, and has built a career around connecting global citizens to solve social problems across boundaries. He co-founded the Amani Institute, a new model of higher education that develops talent to solve 21st-century problems, with these values in mind.
The seeds of Amani Institute were cultivated while Roshan worked at Ashoka: Innovators for the Public, the global pioneer of social entrepreneurship, for almost a decade. Starting by co-launching Ashoka’s Youth Venture program in India, Roshan has gone on to help create or manage several other initiatives to help the world’s leading social entrepreneurs, including the Ashoka Peace initiative, the Ashoka Globalizer, Ashoka’s Fellow Security program, Senior Fellows program, and organizational expansion to Japan.
