"Marc is an incredibly thoughtful and empathetic moderator," The Nantucket Project Executive Director Kate Brosnan said in a post on the project’s blog. "He brings out the best in everyone during these discussions. He also sets a tone of civility and tolerance that is so important to us."
The annual Fellows Award recognizes an alumnus of The Nantucket Project’s Fellows Program, whose ideas “prove-out and genuinely benefit society.” Skvirsky, who oversees programming of The Fellows Program, was honored for his “boldness and originality of his thinking.”
"My passion is working with adolescents," Skvirsky says, "and giving them the tools to think like moral philosophers."
