Words can sometimes, in moments of grace, attain a quality of deeds.” — Elie Wiesel
LRN is the exclusive corporate partner of The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity Prize in Ethics. Together, the organizations are extending The Elie Wiesel Prize in Ethics Essay Contest at a time where there needs to be increased focus on the role of ethics in education, politics, business and the global community.
“As a teacher, I appreciate that Dov Seidman and LRN are educators helping people and institutions deal with ethical questions and make the right decisions. We are inspired by their efforts, and together, we will look for new ways to engage students in developing habits of ethical leadership.” – Elie Wiesel
As part of their partnership, LRN and The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity are working to increase public dialogue on ethical matters of importance to citizens, institutions and society at large. We wish to foster student participation in an effort to share their questions, arguments, and recommendations for ethical action with the general public, as well as enlist a wider spectrum of academic partners and students.
“I can’t think of a person whose life’s work better stands as a testament to the notion of living a principled life. Elie Wiesel has dedicated himself to the idea of defending and living by ethical principles and values no matter how unpopular or dangerous. He has done so as a teacher, an author, a Holocaust survivor and a human rights activist, inspiring the very best from people and institutions.
We are immensely proud to join with him and the Foundation in engaging students to consider ethical issues at the most intellectually formative time of their lives.” – Dov Seidman, CEO and Chairman of LRN
