We’re thrilled to announce the launch of season 2 of our podcast, On Course! Similar to the show’s first season, season 2 is an interview-style show hosted by Eric Dawson, a 1996 Echoing Green Fellow and the founder of Peace First. Guests on the show are all Echoing Green Fellows whose work and own leadership reflects building opportunity and equity for communities across the U.S. and the world.
On Course dives into the social entrepreneurship journey by digging into the “who” and “why” of the leaders in this field. We explore why social entrepreneurs do what they do; the connective tissue between their past, present, and future work; the struggles, optimism, and rewards of working in the social sector; and what it takes to launch and drive movements rooted in social justice.
