Ashoka would like to congratulate Jeff Skoll for being selected as the recipient of the Independent Sector's 2012 John W. Gardner Leadership Award.
The award recognizes living Americans invested in the nonprofit community whose leadership in the sector has disrupted the status quo, inspired movements, strengthened civic participation, and improved people's lives.
Skoll has named Bill Drayton—a Gardner Leadership Award winner in 2011—as a "dear friend" and "mentor," and Ashoka feels that there is no better recipient for the award than Jeff, one of the brightest minds in the game.
Kudos to Jeff Skoll, a long-time partner and protégé.
