"Witnessing Social Impact": Joel Lamstein Featured in the New York Times
August 28, 2011 , Boston, MA - The staff at JSI and World Education are extremely proud of our president, Joel Lamstein, who is profiled in the New York Times feature, The Boss.
The Boss appears weekly in the Sunday Business section and highlights the influences and philosophies of exceptional business leaders.
In his interview with Glenn Rifkin, Lamstein talks about how his late father, his presence on the steps of the University of Michigan library when President Kennedy announced the Peace Corps 50 years ago, his experience with the Vietnam draft, and early work at IBM all shaped his approach to running two global organizations.
Today, Joel gets great satisfaction from seeing how JSI and World Education's programs change people's lives for the better.
Joel co-founded JSI with Dr. Norbert Hirschhorn in 1978 and over the 33 years has built both John Snow, Inc. and its sister nonprofit, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. into two close-knit organizations that have worked in 105 countries to advance the health of underserved and vulnerable populations. In 1982, he also assumed the leadership of World Education, a global nonprofit that improves the lives of the poor through education and social and economic development programs. This year, World Education marks its 60th anniversary of supporting literacy and community development around the world.
