Join investigative journalist and author Amanda Ripley as she sits down with World Savvy’s Dana Mortenson to discuss conflict, empathy, collaboration across differences, and how we can create a more peaceful, multicultural world.

Amanda Ripley is an investigative journalist for The Atlantic and other magazines and a New York Times bestselling author. She’s spent her career trying to make sense of complicated human mysteries, from what happens to our brains in a disaster to how some countries manage to educate virtually all their kids to think for themselves. Her first book, The Unthinkable: Who Survives When Disaster Strikes—and Why, was published in 15 countries and turned into a PBS documentary. Her next book, The Smartest Kids in the World—and How They Got That Way, was a New York Times bestseller. Amanda’s most recent book is High Conflict: Why We Get Trapped and How We Get Out, published by Simon & Schuster in April 2021.
