This is Catalyze, a podcast produced by the Morehead-Cain Foundation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. With a wink and a nod to the Foundation's two chemist benefactors—John Motley Morehead III and Gordon Cain—“Catalyze” is meant to represent action and movement. By definition, a catalyst causes or accelerates change. Morehead-Cain Scholars and Alumni cause and accelerate change in their lives, careers, and communities with the projects they undertake to transform themselves and the world around them for the better. Each episode of Catalyze features one of these action-oriented alumni and their story. Our recorded conversations cover Carolina experiences, career evolutions, individual leadership approaches, personal values, and all kinds of stories of resilience and achievement. Our vision is for the stories of Morehead-Cain Scholars and Alumni to inspire you to go out and catalyze the world around you. To be the change you want to see, and to galvanize others to join you in making positive change happen.
