Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) September 23, 2009
A senior team of Interaction Associates' experts in collaboration and navigating change will participate in a world cafe dialog on global issues at the Vancouver Peace Summit sponsored by the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education, scheduled for September 26-29 in Vancouver British Columbia.
The summit's focus is Nobel Laureates in Dialogue, and it features His Holiness the Dalai Lama with noted Nobel Peace Prize winners and international leaders from the fields of education, the arts, business, politics, and social transformation.
"We are honored to be part of this event — specifically to foster conversations about cross-sector collaboration and how the business world and social sector can work together to help bring positive change in the world," said Linda Dunkel, President and CEO of Interaction Associates. "Collaboration and values-based leadership are important themes in our work with business leaders and in efforts to advance important social issues," added Dunkel.
Dunkel will lead the IA team in Vancouver, which will draw on IA's deep experience with the non-profit it founded, The Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC). IA created the Institute in 1993 as a vehicle for moving the firm's values into action in the non-profit and public sectors. IA helps to fund IISC with a donation of 10 percent of the firm’s annual pre-tax profits.
"Success at cross-sector collaboration is critical in order to excel at managing change and having impact," added Dunkel, who is Chair of the Board for World Centers of Compassion for Children International (WCCCI). In that capacity, Dunkel focuses on international children's issues with the organization's founder, Nobel Peace Prize winner, Betty Williams.
"Interaction Associates is leading a cross-sector group of leaders on a unique leadership development experience in October 2009," Dunkel noted. "With Accelerator Expedition, we are demonstrating a commitment to developing leaders in both the business and the nonprofit sectors who can collaborate to address critical social issues while delivering shareholder value."
