Compassion and empathy can’t be bought; it’s innate. Peggy Dulany, a fourth-generation member of the Rockefeller family, could have done anything with her life. Instead, after spending time with hard working families she met in the slums of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Peggy chose to devote her life to making a difference in the lives of those who, through no fault of their own, were born into poverty.

The self-described workaholic is the founder of Synergos, a nonprofit organization that is confronting poverty and inequality around the world by promoting and supporting collaborations among business, government, civil society, and marginalized communities. Over the course of more than 25 years, Synergos has supported innovative initiatives in more than 30 countries and regions.

I had the great pleasure of interviewing Peggy about her life and the efforts that she supports, and I am happy to share her story with you in this extended interview. In part one, you learned about her childhood. Now hear about her life, passion, and wise insights.
