A Shorely Distinguished Speaker (NYC)

News Story

Lubin welcomes Bill Shore, co-founder of Share Our Strength, as the 2015 Henry George Distinguished Speaker on Wednesday, April 8, for a lecture on the NYC Campus.

The Lubin School of Business is pleased to present Bill Shore as the 2015 Henry George Distinguished Speaker on Wednesday, April 8, at 6:10 p.m. for an inspirational talk you won’t want to miss in Lecture Hall South.

Thirty-one years ago, Bill Shore and his sister Debbie were moved by the effect of famine in Ethiopia, and decided to take a $2,000 chance on a bold new venture: ending hunger and poverty at home in the US and around the world.

Since then, their nonprofit Share Our Strength has raised and invested more than $376 million in the fight against hunger, and found support among national leaders across a variety of industries. Shore has served as Share Our Strength’s chief executive officer for all of its 31 years, and written four books—Revolution of the Heart, The Cathedral Within, The Light of Conscience, and The Imaginations of Unreasonable Men—on the facets of social change that he and his sister have helped to affect through Share Our Strength.

A native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Shore earned his BA at the University of Pennsylvania and his law degree from George Washington University in Washington, DC. Shore served as a director of The Timberland Company from 2001 through 2011. He was also named one of America's Best Leaders (October 2005) by U.S. News & World Report. Shore has been an adjunct professor at New York University's Stern School of Business and an advisor for the Reynolds Foundation Fellowship program at the John F. Kennedy School of Government.
