Annie Lennox recently received the Honorary Skoll Award for Social Entrepreneurship at the 2013 Skoll World Forum in Oxford, England.
In this new video of her acceptance speech, Annie talks about her love for this community of entrepreneurs changing the world, the importance of speaking up for other women, the failure of the media and her admiration for Eve Ensler.
The Skoll World Forum is the premier, international platform for accelerating entrepreneurial approaches and innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing social issues. Each year in Oxford, nearly 1,000 distinguished delegates from the social, finance, private and public sectors convene in Oxford for three days and nights of critical debates, discussions and work sessions aimed at innovating, accelerating and scaling solutions to social challenges.
