Louise Diamond, PhD, has been applying systems thinking to critical issues at every scale of human interaction for more than 40 years. In 2008 Louise founded Global Systems Initiatives, where she brings a transformative whole systems perspective on complex global issues to the policy community. In 1992 she co-founded (with Ambassador John McDonald)The Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy(IMTD) in Washington, D.C. There she worked as a peace builder in places of violent conflict around the world, helping adversaries to bridge political, historical, cultural, and psychological divides to find creative solutions and build cooperative partnerships.

She has written four books and numerous articles, chapters, and essays on peace and other international concerns. In 1989 she produced a film on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Many Voices, One Song. She brings a background in applied human behavior, organizational transformation, and systems dynamics to her activities as consultant, coach, trainer, author, and public speaker. She earned a doctorate in Peace Studies in 1990; a CAS degree in Human Resource and Organizational Development in 1974; and a B.A. from Oberlin College in 1966.

Birute Regine, EdD, earned her degrees from Harvard in developmental psychology, is a researcher and writer who specializes in the dynamics and development of relationships and women’s role in the workplace, and is trained in gestalt therapy. Regine speaks to corporations and at national conferences on transforming the workplace to be personally fulfilling, humane, and economically successful. Birute founded Harvest Associates with Roger Lewin in 2000, and they co-authored wrote The Soul at Work: Embracing Complexity Science for Business Success. In paperback, it is renamed Weaving Complexity and Business: Engaging the Soul at Work. This book reveals organizational transformation and complexities and a new way of understanding it. Birute interviewed more than 50 women in the U.S. and other countries for her most recent book, Iron Butterflies: Women Transforming Themselves and the World.
