[TEXT: Diana Wells, President of Ashoka] My name is Diana Wells
and I’m president of Ashoka.

I had the privilege to be part of Ashoka
since 1988 in one role or another.

00:00:14.708,00:00:19.417
Ashoka started because of one man, William Drayton,

00:00:19.417,00:00:24.833
and his ability to convince many of us that the idea that

00:00:24.833,00:00:30.250
change is driven by an individual who has a great idea,

00:00:30.250,00:00:35.833
and finding those people with those ideas and backing them,

00:00:35.833,00:00:42.500
and through a network of peers and
through some very small financing,

00:00:42.500,00:00:00.000
was an incredibly smart investment in making change happen.
