Keynote Speaker: Nicholas Kristof
Nicholas Kristof, Pulitzer-Prize award winning journalist and Op-Ed Columnist for The New York Times, has over two decades of experience reporting on human rights violations and social injustices around the world, including Sudan, Darfur, Israel-Palestine, Libya and Iraq.
After joining The New York Times in 1984, Kristof served as correspondent in
Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Beijing and Tokyo. In 1990 Kristof and his wife, Sheryl
WuDunn, then also a NYT journalist, became the first husband-wife team to win
a Pulitzer Prize for journalism, for their coverage of China’s Tiananmen Square
democracy movement. Kristof won his second Pulitzer in 2006 for what the judges
called “his graphic, deeply reported columns that, at personal risk, focused attention
on genocide in Darfur and that gave voice to the voiceless in other parts of the world.”
Kristof and WuDunn have written four best-selling books: Half the Sky, A Path
Appears, China Wakes, and Thunder.
