NICHOLAS KRISTOF on tech brands like Apple and Google, and their lack of social responsibility.
5 days ago
Nicholas Kristof was first featured in print at 14 months old, although he didn't get his first byline till years later. At age fifteen, he made the local news for his political activism and was named "Neighbor of the Week."
Since then, Kristof integrated his interest in reporting and social activism and, as a result, has received numerous awards, including Two Pulitzers and, most recently, the Employee of the Month Award. He's probably best know for writing a column for The New York Times, which focuses mainly on human rights abuses, gender parity, genocide, and other critical global social issues. He also co-authored multiple books with his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, including HALF THE SKY and A PATH APPEARS, both of which shed light on tangible examples of how people can become civically involved. In addition to agitating for reform through his writing, Kristof has mentored many budding journalists through a program he started with The New York Times.
Our interview for Employee of the Month was taped live at Joe's Pub at The Public Theater. It was thrilling to hear about where his experience growing up on a sheep far, whether he thinks empathy can be taught, and how major tech brands, like Google and Apple, fail to practice social responsibility.
