Empathy is one of the vital competencies of the 21st century. Empathy is related to collaboration, building trust, problem solving, health, and peaceful resolution of conflict. It is an essential component of leadership and critical to success in business and education.

Empathy and compassion may even be key to the survival of the human race.

Empathy can be viewed even more broadly as compassionate action.  So we’re inviting you to this Empathy Adventure — where we’ll come together online to discuss the many types of empathy and then perform a few simple acts of empathy that will ripple out to many others.

Through personal stories of group members and empathy “experts,” the group will develop a deep awareness of empathy.
