We produce a leadership story on the work of each award recipient. The stories illuminate different aspects of leadership that awardees identify as central to their work and that may be of interest to other social change practitioners. This narrative inquiry is our core research component.
The stories emerge from a collaborative process that includes award recipients, their closest associates, members of their communities, and members of the Research and Documentation team at NYU/Wagner. The stories capture unique aspects of the awardees' work and highlight the achievements of the awardees and their communities. We hope they inspire others to find solutions to address their own challenges.
