“Who we are drives and shapes what we believe. We believe in creating opportunity and reducing inequality ... and the future we shape will depend perhaps most of all on who we are and who we will be: the extraordinary individuals who define our identity and embody our aims. We must be a magnet for talented people from across the economic spectrum.”

Drew Faust, President of Harvard University, during her speech at the European Club Leaders Meeting in Berlin in October 2016
