#plugintodevin Show - Devin Thorpe for Congress Guest: Mandar Apte Issue: Promoting peace, compassion, nonviolence and social justice. Violence affects everyone - me - you - everyone - irrespective of our socio-economic status, political views, or where we live. We have to come together to end systemic racism and promote compassion, nonviolence and harmonious co-existence Bio: Mandar is a former Shell GameChanger who used to manage Shell's investment portfolio on social innovations that create shared value - both social impact and business value. After working at Shell for 17 years, Mandar became a Visiting Scholar at George Mason and started an innovation lab on the Business for Peace that provides innovation consulting to brands to find novel ways to make peace profitable. Currently, he manages a nonprofit peace consultancy 'Cities4Peace' that actively promotes peace and compassion in cities across the world. His flagship work in 2019 was in Los Angeles - working closely with the LAPD and the LA Mayors Office for Gang Reduction in Los Angeles. In 2017, Mandar produced/directed a documentary film 'From India With Love' (now on Amazon Prime). The documentary showcases the journey to India that he hosted for the parents from the Sandy Hook school, Black Lives Matter activists and a former gang member from LA to study nonviolence.
