'I Know This to Be True' is a global five-year project founded on original interviews to inspire a new generation of leaders. Truth, wisdom, inspiration and what really matters for the most inspiring leaders of our time. Politician, feminist and champion for social equality, Jacinda Ardern epitomizes the modern leader. In this warm and candid interview, the fortieth Prime Minister of New Zealand discusses her childhood growing up in rural Aotearoa New Zealand, her journey into politics, and the lessons she has learned along the way. From her thoughts on climate change and women's rights, to the horrific Christchurch mosque attacks, she reflects on the matters and moments that have impacted her most. With sincerity and insight, she highlights the importance of kindness, compassion and inclusivity, while stressing the need for authenticity in a fast-paced and highly digitized world. At once inspiring and uplifting, her words are a compelling reminder of our shared humanity and a call to action to young leaders and activists around the world.
