We are a volunteer group of empathy enthusiasts. We reach out to various groups, companies and organizations in the community and provide free presentations on ways in which empathy could be applied in their context and setting. For example, a presentation for a pharmaceutical company might highlight the benefits of empathy within their environment by creating a patient-centric work culture. Through promoting a culture of empathizing with their patient-customers, employees find intrinsic motivation, connection to the larger picture, and a shared sense of purpose while at work.
Volunteers also experience benefits. Through this work, volunteers grow their skillset, deepen their practice of empathy for all, and develop a culture of empathy in our community. It is a win-win for both presenters and audience members.
