Polarization is a defining characteristic of this moment, contributing to and exacerbating  poverty, social injustice, and the existential threat of climate change. 

Meeting these challenges requires collaborations that center and support proximate leaders, that act on the root causes of problems, and that are rigorously values-based. Most of all, it requires working across our differences.

Members of Synergos' global network will come together in and around New York City to explore building the kind of leadership needed today. Join us.
