Taking Action to Change the World

Ted Turner

The James C. Morgan Global Humanitarian Award, inspired by Applied Materials Chairman Emeritus, Jim Morgan, each year honors an individual whose broad vision and leadership are helping to address humanity's greatest challenges.

We are pleased to announce that the 2014 honor will be presented to Ted Turner during the Tech Awards, an annual program recognizing innovators who are using technology to benefit humanity, in Silicon Valley in November.  Like Jim, Mr. Turner demonstrates in his work and his philanthropy that leaders with passion and drive can turn ideas into concrete solutions for a better world. As the creator of CNN, the founder of the UN Foundation and a longtime environmentalist, he is actively engaged in improving the way people live.

Visit The Tech Awards web site to learn more about the honoree and his ideas on unleashing the potential in all of us to make a positive contribution to our community.
