The Importance of Empathy

Wednesday, May 12, 2021 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Virtual Event

The pandemic has brought more grief, depression, and isolation than ever. Research shows that colleagues matter more in these times than professional help, but many of us feel too tapped to give it. Dr. Kelsey Crowe provides resilience-building strategies and an “empathy workout” to better support from family and others in actionable ways.

Dr. Crowe is the founder and head of the training company Empathy Bootcamp. She’s the co-author of the book There Is No Good Card for This: What to do and say when life is scary, awful, and unfair to the people you love, listed as a top ten read by multiple national news outlets, and heralded by Wharton School Professor, Adam Grant, and Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg.
