The escalating crises in the world today offer two choices: continuing violence and conflict, or finding a way to toward peace and greater understanding. Never before have we needed more capable leadership than we do now, and no generation will be more affected by these choices than the generation now emerging into political maturity.

In a groundbreaking dialogue at New York University on Wednesday, September 24, three influential leaders, Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan; Rabbi Irwin Kula, author of the award winning book, Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life and President of CLAL—The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership; and the Sakyong, Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche, one of Tibet’s highest and most respected incarnate Buddhist lamas, will address the challenge in a public talk on the power and practice of compassionate leadership.

The event, with New York University President John Sexton and Ellen Schall, Dean of the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at NYU, will be held 6:00-to-7:30 p.m. at the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, 566 LaGuardia Place, New York, N.Y. Probing their own traditions and experiences, the presenters will examine how their different paths can contribute to a shared vision of interdependence and global connection.
