About the Event
Empathy and kindness, now in short supply, are a source of strength not weakness, states Stanford psychology professor Dr. Jamil Zaki in his groundbreaking book The War for Kindness. He asserts that empathy is not a fixed trait (something we are born with) but a life skill that can be built and strengthened through effort.
Through real life stories and cutting-edge research, this director of Stanford’s Social Neuroscience Lab, makes a powerful case for creating links of empathy to give us collective power to strengthen our social environment and thus to make a caring and compassionate world.
