Shaklee Corporation recently installed a Peace Pole, a prominent international symbol and monument to peace, at their global headquarters in Pleasanton, California.
A dedication ceremony took place on Thursday, September 19, to commemorate International Day of Peace. It was held during the Shaklee New Directors Conference, where members of the Shaklee Family were recognized for their contributions in helping their communities create healthier lives.
Peace Poles are crafted by May Peace Prevail on Earth International, an inclusive, all-embracing nonprofit organization associated with the Department of Public Information at the United Nations. Their grassroots global movement aims to bring people of various cultures, faith traditions and political ideals together as one united heart and mind.
May Peace Prevail on Earth International Executive Director Fumi Johns Stewart explained, “Planting a Peace Pole is a way of spurring people to inspire, awaken and uplift the human consciousness around the world. It is very fitting to have a Peace Pole awarded to Shaklee, a company whose mission is to give people the opportunity to live a life of energy, meaning and purpose.”Fumi, along with veteran and peace activist Danny Garcia, presented the Peace Pole to Shaklee Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Roger Barnett.
