June 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Dr. Michael Thomas uses the platform of empathy and compassion to illustrate how diversity and inclusion efforts are most effective from a place of empathy – not sympathy. During this talk, Dr. Thomas unpacks the differences between empathy and sympathy, the effects on diversity and inclusion based on these lenses, and how to utilize empathy in your diversity and inclusion efforts effectively. At the end of this session, you will clearly understand why an empathetic approach is better than a sympathetic approach and a model for employing empathy in your workplace.
