    The Everyday Jedi

    At the age of seven, John Amaechi was convinced: His mother was a Jedi. A single mom who worked as a psychologist, she had almost superhuman abilities to reassure, comfort and help her patients. Over 15 years later, as an Orlando Magic player, Amaechi faced his own Jedi moment. Hear Amaechi's inspiring story, from becoming the first publicly gay NBA player to adopting two high school boys, and learn how we can all embrace our inner talent.

    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.
