    Every Mother Counts

    Eleven years ago, Christy Turlington Burns experienced traumatic complications while giving birth to her daughter. As she recovered, she learned that 300,000 women die during labor, while 98 percent of those deaths are preventable. Now, through her organization Every Mother Counts, she is on a mission to change that. Hear the story of how she is making the world a healthier place for women everywhere.

    Instigators: Voices for Change

    Can one person effect change for many? CIW honors accomplished individuals who jumped on a mountain bike, picked up a guitar and stepped off the basketball court and into the spotlight to amplify the voices of society’s most marginalized. Learn how these instigators tapped into their own talents to forward causes that include women’s equality, gun violence prevention and LGBT rights—and how you can change our world for the better, too.
