|Secular Conversations: The Elite Charade of Changing the World
In this video program, Anand Giridharadas takes us into the inner sanctums of a new gilded age, where the rich and powerful fight for equality and justice any way they can - except in ways that threaten the social order and their position atop it. They rebrand themselves as saviors of the poor; they lavishly reward "thought leaders" who redefine "change" in ways that preserve the status quo; and they constantly seek to do more good but never less harm. Facilitated discussion following the video. Anand is the author of Winners Take All, The True American and India Calling. He was a foreign correspondent and columnist for the New Your Times from 2005 to 2016 and has also written for the many newspapers and magazines. He teaches journalism at New Your University and has spoken on the main stage of TED. His writing has been honored by the Society of Publishers in Asia, the Poynter Fellowship at Yale, and the New Your Public Library's Helen Bernstein Award.
