On this episode of the "Powered by Paragon" series, we introduce you to Dr. Scilla Elworthy. Dr. Scilla Elworthy is a peace builder, policy maker, and three time Nobel Peace Prize nominee. A world renown advocate for peace, Scilla founded the Oxford Research Group in 1982 to develop effective dialogue between nuclear weapons policy-makers worldwide and their critics. Later she also founded Peace Direct, a charity supporting local peace-builders in conflict areas. She was an advisor to The Elders, a group brought together by Nelson Mandela to implement peace making around the world, and is currently a member of the World Future Council. Scilla is an author, publishing The Business Plan for Peace: Building a World Without War in 2017, and most recently, The Mighty Heart. Dr. Elworthy is also well known for her TedTalk on the best ways to combat force without using force in return. Scilla and her team are also offering a brand new 10-week training journey called the Mighty Heart Online Course to become more effective when facing challenges. Throughout the course, you will learn the skills and tools to help you address the kind of crises you and colleagues are facing; deeper self-knowledge, compassion and presence; the ability to make wiser and more grounded decisions, and connection to a diverse and aligned community working powerfully for change.
