Evangelical Richard Cizik Reflects on Ousting from NAE
Open Society Foundations - Center for American Progress
Navigating office politics can be perilous under the best of circumstances. But for people whose moral principles put them at odds with their employer and colleagues, the burdens can be especially great.Join three Open Society Fellows as they discuss their experiences working for many years inside large organizations with which they often had profound disagreements of conscience.Now that they have left their respective institutions -- the US Air Force, the National Association of Evangelicals, and the Central Intelligence Agency -- the panelists can speak with candor about their lives as outsiders within.What were the emotional and professional stresses they encountered every day on the job? How free did they feel to share their concerns with colleagues? And how did they negotiate the difficult transition to life on the outside?
