In our journey to Be Fearless and champion a fearless approach to tackling social challenges, the Case Foundation team will spotlight leading changemakers across sectors that have embraced fearlessness. Our spotlights will provide personal accounts of why these changemakers adopted a fearless approach, how they overcame hurdles, and how taking risks, being bold, and failing forward led to quicker results and deeper impact.

We spoke with Doug Holladay, CEO of Buxton Initiative & PathNorth, former Special Ambassador to South Africa, Goldman Sachs executive officer, and advisor to Presidents and military brass alike. Doug’s strong belief in change and the opportunities we can gain from taking risks have shaped his stellar life of service and led him to co-found a movement to bring leaders of different faiths together for honest and constructive conversation in the weeks immediately following 9/11, and continues today.


You can watch Doug’s answers to our questions in the video above, or share each segment individually:
What do you think it means to Be Fearless in approaching social challenges?
Tell us about a time when you and your organization were Fearless.
