Abby Falik, CEO and Founder of Global Citizen Year, was recently selected as one of the GOOD Magazine’s GOOD 100, which honors 100 incredible people moving the world forward through “doing.” The worldwide awards program is a project of GOOD, the global community of people who give a damn. Falik is recognized for creating and growing Global Citizen Year to build the next generation of leaders through an immersive bridge year in the developing world.
Created in 2009, the GOOD 100 was designed to identify and honor the catalysts who drive change in their communities in creative and inspiring ways. They are artists, activists, and entrepreneurs—all are innovators from the worlds of education, design, business, technology, policy, environment and food. Curated by GOOD, its advisory board, and former GOOD 100 honorees, the GOOD 100 are emblematic of pragmatic idealism and creative engagement at its best.
“Through Global Citizen Year, Abby Falik has created something that is more than a program – it’s a movement,” said Ben Goldhirsch, CEO of GOOD. “They are forging a new educational pathway for America’s emerging leaders and we are delighted to highlight the transformative impact of their effort.”
