Meg Lyons & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy & Compassion with Charter for Compassion Pakistan

Meg Lyons is Executive Officer of the Charter for Compassion in Pakistan. Meg talked to us via her laptop while being driven through the streets of Karachi, Pakistan at night. It really brought home the power of communications technology to bring people together.

Meg talked about her value of courage and authenticity, as well as, about her work of promoting the Charter for Compassion in Pakistan.


The Charter of Compassion is a cooperative effort to restore not only compassionate thinking but, more importantly, compassionate action to the center of our lives. Our programs, tools, and activities allow our stakeholders and partners the opportunity to explore the value of collaboration, empathy, and compassion within their own respective entities, and institutionalize these positive changes across all sections of society.
