Dick Simon, a successful businessman and accomplished photographer, will share his experiences as co-founder of Peace Action Network (PAN) and the important role that business leaders can play in peacebuilding. Through a series of Action Forums organized by PAN, business men and women from world-wide "hot spots" are brought together to meet with political leaders for policy changes, to promote peace through cross-cultural communication among members, and to champion specific media, business, and micro-enterprise initiatives in conflict areas.
