Sweden-Stanford Global Leaders post on Bill Gates’ Facebook

Today, students from Uppsala, Sweden, and from Stanford University are collaborating in analyzing speeches of Global Leaders – Obama, Queen Rania, Bono, and Meryl Streep on helping women in Afghanistan.  For the collaborative activity, the students are working as an INTERNATIONAL TEAM to post a response on the Bill Gates Foundation Facebook page – What problem is your team working on?  What lessons can you learn from your leader to share with Bill Gates in terms of how to approach world problems?

Students,  what did you think of this activity?  What was your favorite part?  What did you learn about rhetoric for leadership across cultures? 

Please write your name and institution in your reply!

    Awesome activity. It was interesting to learn about each other’s perceptions of religion, as well as our different life styles.
