The COVID-19 pandemic and the spotlight on the Black Lives Matter movement has called upon us to tap into our empathy and willingness to honor the lived experiences of others more than ever before. We know that empathy is a muscle that we need to build and a skill we need to intentionally cultivate. Also, we can't pour from empty cups and most of us have experienced compassion fatigue. Join us as we learn new ways to demonstrate empathy while also refueling ourselves. We will be led by Michael Tennant, the creator of Actually Curious and CEO of Curiosity Lab, which was featured in the New York Times.
Audience: All are welcome. And -- this session is different than the traditional professional development that we have offered to our wider audiences. Transparently, it may not be for everyone, and that is okay. We ask that participants turn on their cameras, share vulnerably, speak their truth, and show love.
We will host two article discussions centered on the two pandemics rattling our country right now: deep structural racism and the COVID-19 pandemic’s unequal impact. Together, we will discuss and grapple with timely texts through a turnkey protocol participants can then use with their teams. Articles will be sent as prereads in advance.
Audience: all are welcome, 30 minutes of prereading required
Timing: [early 2021]
