Turning Good into Greater Good
Dolly Chugh is a Harvard-educated, award-winning social psychologist at the New York University Stern School of Business, where she is an expert researcher in the psychology of good people.

Through personal stories and the science that supports her findings, Dolly guides us closer to becoming the person we mean to be in the hopes that her findings will help us make the world a better place.
This video interview, recorded in February 2021 and sponsored by the University of Michigan’s Center for Positive Organizations, touches on the main findings from the book, punctuated with personal stories and practical tips.

Join us for this special 4-hour visit to the St Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum, which is planned for Spirit of St. Louis Women's Fund members only. This insightful opportunity begins with a 90-minute museum tour followed by the Impact Lab experience and group discussion. This experience seeks to empower visitors to explore the complexities of genocide, hate crimes, and prejudice from perspectives of both historical and contemporary moments. By learning from past and contemporary moments, we can become better equipped to be “Active Allies” who work together to create a more tolerant, compassionate world.
The St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Holocaust, educating about its causes and illustrating how what happened during this tragic period relates to our lives today, and uses the history and lessons of the Holocaust to reject hatred, promote understanding, and inspire change.
This event is limited to 50 SOS member participants and includes light refreshments during the group discussion. Advance registration with pre-payment is required. Walk-in registrations at the museum at the time of the event cannot be accommodated. Not a member? Join SOS today!
Additional details and registration coming soon.
