Atlantic Exchanges offer compelling insights and provocations from leading voices in technology, business, policy and culture, in conversation with The Atlantic’s editorial talent. Washington Editor-at-Large Steve Clemons sat down for a rare public interview on the global emergence of purpose-driven organizations, both in the profit and non-profit spheres, with one of the UK's premier civic and national leaders, Lord Michael Levy.
Lord Levy, a leading new Labor Party architect, speaks of "ambition with compassion" as the North Star of both his political and philanthropic work. He serves as President of Community Service Volunteers for the Jewish Free School and supports many other causes that typify the type of mission-oriented ethic we will be discussing. Clemons explored with Lord Levy what the right frames and disciplines may be in establishing successful organizations that move the needle on vital social needs and discuss the politics of the day.
