Peggy Dulany is Chair of Synergos, a global organisation helping solve complex issues around the world by advancing bridging leadership, which builds trust and collective action.
Peggy founded Synergos in 1986 to promote collaboration among grassroots groups and government or business leaders and organisations, people who otherwise would not have access to each other, so that they can develop long-term relationships and forge new paths in overcoming poverty. In 2001, she co-founded Synergos’ Global Philanthropists Circle with her father, David Rockefeller, to support philanthropic families in using this approach.
A reflection on the theme: 'Towards a Loving World, Leadership and Governance for Well-Being'.
Synergos' mission is to help solve complex issues around the world by advancing bridging leadership, which builds trust and collective action.
Love, and our access to feeling it, is the ultimate vehicle for showing compassion and, in turn, for stimulating others to open their hearts to feelings and expressions of love. As I have experienced when guiding wilderness retreats, connection with wild Nature as a pathway to experiencing the infinite love of the Divine, to heart-opening beauty, to our imagination and to our essential creativity which, connected with love and gratitude, open the way to people working together to solve intransigent problems.
