In this episode, we were fortunate to be joined by John Griffith and Tad Lunden from the American Refugee Committee / Asili. During the interview we discussed their human-centered-design experiences and using business for good. We also talk about the difference between being a “beneficiary” and being a “customer”. Wonderful people and inspiring work.
- American Refugee Committee is and always has been about amazing global citizens taking action to change our world. More than 35 years ago, Chicago businessman Neal Ball started ARC. He recruited a volunteer relief team who deployed to the Thai-Cambodian border. Even in the face of terrible tragedy, that first ARC team was characterized by their incredible energy and belief that anything was possible. Learn more about the American Refugee Committee here.
