“There is a war being fought and we are losing,” Farah Pandith tells me in our conversation about what drives hate and radical extremism. Farah, who is often described as a “diplomatic entrepreneur,” has worked across political lines for three presidential administrations, has covered the globe meeting with young people and community leaders, and has developed a clear understanding of not only the challenge, but how she believes we need to address it comprehensively and effectively.
Farah provides constructive advice for governments, corporations, and non-profits and emphasizes the importance we as individuals can play in countering this growing threat.
A Kashmir-born, Muslim American, Farah is taking her passion for global peace and her understanding of Islamic culture to make American and the world a safer place. Her new book “How We Win: How Cutting Edge Entrepreneurs, Political Visionaries, Enlightened Business Leaders, and Social Media Mavens Can Defeat the Extremist Threat” is a must read for anyone hoping to gain a better understanding of the treat we face and what each of us can do about it.
