Episode 43 Iran: Restoring Human Rights

Dec 21, 2022

Dr. Sara Nasserzadeh and I discuss the current events in Iran and what we need to understand about the communities there, what is changing, and what we can do here in the United States to support Iranian communities.   Dr. Nasserzadeh also discusses her personal journey and current work with Iranian communities, both locally and globally.

Dr. Sara Nasserzadeh, PhD, is a social psychologist and global thought leader in the fields of couples counseling, cross-cultural fluency, diversity and inclusion. She has practiced across the world, including in London, New York and Palo Alto, and currently in Beverly Hills, California.

Throughout her work, there are several common threads, the most fundamental of which is her belief in “loving many through one” and therefore the possibility of creating world peace one relationship at a time. She has also been a senior cultural advisor and strategic consultant for governments, international NGOs, United Nation-affiliated agencies, Fortune 500 companies, academic institutions, and professional organizations across 38 countries.
