Empathy Pronunciation /ˈempəTHē/ /ˈɛmpəθi/ NOUN The ability to understand and share i/ NOUN The ability to understand and share the feelings of another.
As the world outside of work continues having conversations about discrimination, systemic racism, police brutality and what people can do as individuals, and collectively, to better support Black people and people of color, it’s important to bring these discussions into the workplace as well. However, empathy needs to be present in order for these conversations to create a diverse and inclusive workplace.
Empathy has always been a critical part of learning, and stepping out of our own shoes — and even comfort zones — is more important now than ever. Leaders and managers who have empathy are more equipped to create environments where their employees can create,learn, speak up, feel safe and thrive.
Join us for a panel discussion on empathy as a tool in learning and development, where you will:
- Discover new training, coaching and talent development methods that will educate your learners on empathy that will last.
- Learn how to be an empathetic leader and how to encourage these meaningful conversations to keep going long term.
- Empower your employees to speak out against workplace discrimination and social injustices.
