View From The Top: Malala Yousafzai
View From The Top is the dean’s premier speaker series where students interview well-respected leaders from around the world who share insights on effective leadership, their personal core values, and lessons learned throughout their career.
Malala Yousafzai is cofounder and board member of Malala Fund. She began her campaign for girls’ education at age 11 when she anonymously blogged for the BBC about life under the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. She soon began speaking publicly — attracting international media attention and awards.
At age 15, she was shot by the Taliban for speaking out. Malala recovered in the United Kingdom and continued her work. In 2013, she founded Malala Fund with her father, Ziauddin. A year later, Malala received the Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy for girls’ education and equality.
This event is only open to current Stanford GSB students to attend. Students will receive an email announcement and reminders that include links to register to attend in-person.
