As professor of leadership at New York University's school of public service, Irshad inspires young people to practice ethics, values and virtues — such as courage and integrity in times of crisis and corruption. - Harry Walker Agency Irshad Manji is director of the Moral Courage Project at New York University, which aims to develop leaders who will challenge political correctness, intellectual conformity, and self-censorship.
