2022 Week Eight: New Profiles in Courage

New Profiles in Courage
August 13th - 20th

It’s been more than 60 years since then-Senator John F. Kennedy published Profiles in Courage, a collection of short biographies detailing acts of bravery and integrity. The book went on to win a Pulitzer Prize, the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award™ is still awarded every year. Now, two decades into the 21st century, who are these people creating new profiles in courage, the leaders demonstrating bravery and integrity in ways that Kennedy could not perhaps have imagined? Over the course of the week, we lift up these people and their work, with the hope that their stories will inspire all of us to be our best selves.
