The Global Leadership Summit: Session 2/Cory A. Booker

Honorable Cory A. Booker
Mayor of Newark, New Jersey; Urban Reformer
Newark, New Jersey

*Cory Booker became mayor of New Jersey's largest city in 2006. Since then, Newark has experienced a reduction in crime, an increase in city services, and an improvement in education.

*A Rhodes Scholar, he holds earned degrees from Stanford University, Oxford University, and Yale Law School.

*His leadership has been profiled in the Academy Award-nominated film Street Fight and in the Emmy-nominated documentary series Brick City.

Here are a couple things I took away from his lecture.

"Everyone was born an original, buy many die copies."
-Abraham Lincoln

Are we evidencing our truth?

Will You Stand Up?
