Empathy: The Secret Sauce in Effective Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 1:00 pm
Empathy: The Secret Sauce in Effective Diversity, Equity and Inclusion @ Online
Feb 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
For many – and this is particularly true within the nonprofit sector – empathy is our first point of meaningful connection to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts. We think back to instances when our clients have faced barriers and biases, or times when people close to us have been excluded, or our own experiences of feeling that we didn’t belong, and these narratives became the fuel for driving the work forward. But what if we’re only scratching the surface? What if we reconsider empathy as an important skill for effective DEI design, development, and implementation? This webinar explores these questions and shows us how different ways of thinking about empathy can help sweeten the sauce, and bring about more impactful DEI. This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.
