CDDRL and Stanford Social Entrepreneurial Students' Association (SENSA) welcome Peace Corps Director Carrie Hessler-Radelet this Friday who will speak in a moderated discussion on the power of relationships in social entrepreneurship with CDDRL Director Francis Fukuyama.

Carrie Hessler-Radelet, the 19th Director of the Peace Corps has led historic reforms to modernize and strengthen the agency to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century during her time. She spearheaded sweeping efforts to revitalize the Volunteer recruitment, application, and selection process, resulting in record-breaking application numbers in 2015. Hessler-Radelet has also been instrumental in forging innovative strategic partnerships, such as Let Girls Learn, a powerful whole-of-government collaboration with First Lady Michelle Obama to expand access to education for adolescent girls around the world, and the Global Health Service Partnership, which sends physicians and nurses to teach in developing countries.
