This week on Navigating Change we welcome Manu Narayan to the show. Manu is a truly renaissance man. He’s an actor of stage and screen. He’s an accomplished musician. He’s a writer and producer. And for all his professional creative talents, he joins us to discuss his role of Young Alumni trustee on the board of Carnegie Mellon University.

Our conversation is broad in scope, but the lessons are important. Manu’s experience and youth at the table of senior leadership reflects more accurately the body of students the university educates, and the role of young alumni trustee serves to celebrate the critical importance of diversity of thought and experience leading our institutions.
