Changing the World Without Losing Your Mind: A Changemaker Week Event
Jan. 22, 2020 | Register
UC San Diego’s Changemaker Week proudly presents a talk by Alex Counts, founder of the Grameen Foundation and author of “Changing the World Without Losing Your Mind.” Some people are dreamers. They choose a career shaped by dreams of making the world a better place – caring for kids, lifting up the poor and protecting the planet. When your dreams are that powerful, it’s easy to neglect yourself. Both lives and dreams can suffer the consequences. If you’re one of the dreamers, come to hear the author of a new book that Forbes magazine called a "must read" for nonprofit employees.
