The importance of a national conversation — Usually an election year means important in-depth conversations on big national issues. This year it sometimes seems like we're missing the forest through the tweets. That's not the way it used to be. When I was growing up, national conversations was so comprehensive and provocative that they resonated all the way to our dinner table.

Worth Giving: How Tech Finance Leader Brian Sheth Wants to Save the Planet — Every species, no matter how small, is crucial to the planet's survival, argues Brian Sheth. Returning to his childhood passion for conservation, the tech finance leader is focusing his philanthropy on helping to maintain global biodiversity. But can he save the Vietnamese saola?

Worth Giving: Why Socially Conscious Businesses Matter Now — Gunnar Lovelace was born in 1977 in Ibiza, Spain, in a 400-year-old house with no electricity or running water, the son of an Argentine mother who fled a military dictatorship and a Spanish father who was jailed under the fascist rule of Francisco Franco. In 1979, his mother brought him to the U.S.

Rising Son - Worth — Tim Williamson was born and bred in New Orleans, but after he received his Bachelor's in business from Tulane in 1987, the city didn't offer enough opportunities for a young would-be entrepreneur like him to stay home.

Soledad O'Brien: #Blacklivesfade on 2016 trail — The campaign is mostly about angry whites instead of grave police mistreatment of minorities. The Justice Department issued a scathing report on Ferguson, Mo. a year ago, confirming to the broader public what many blacks and Latinos had been saying for years: that the criminal justice system is rigged against them, sometimes with deadly results.

Soledad O'Brien on #OscarsSoWhite — In my experience, diversity doesn't just "happen." It has to be very intentional. People have to have a genuine desire to make a change. It's hard to tell what's going to happen this time around. There are some bright signs, including the fledgling efforts off the Oscars.

International Women's Day Forum 2016 — On March 7 and 8, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Corporate Citizenship Center and United Nations Office for Partnerships will host the 6 th Annual International Women's Day Forum. The event will convene public and private sector leaders to explore inclusive solutions that create opportunities for women and girls around the world.

What Howard Buffett Does in Africa — For hours I travel on roads with potholes big as craters deep into the Democratic Republic of Congo, then walk uphill through the dirt. This is a beautiful country, but poverty, corruption and civil war have left it lacking essential services like roads.
