The award recognizes Dr. Sayeed’s practice of “leadership from the inside out,” her application of Reconciliation Leadership to build communities and to write papers on Reconciliation Leadership she co-authored with Virginia Swain in 2005 and 2006 for conferences convened by the Human Dignity and Humiliation Studies at Columbia University:

“A Leadership and Practice to Reconcile Challenges in a Post–September 11th World” and
“Reconciliation as Policy: A Capacity–Building Proposal for Renewing Leadership and Development
When United Nations Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjöld changed the definition of peace and global security from outside of us to within each of us, he demonstrated his commitment by personally designing a public meditation room for the United Nations Secretariat Lobby in New York. Dr. Sayeed calls Reconciliation Leadership ‘leadership from the inside out” as did Hammarskjold.
