About the Virtual Event

Just a decade ago, empathy was largely an unrecognized competency in business leaders. Today, companies that prioritize empathy are growing faster, earning higher profits, and standing out from the competition. Despite the proven results, empathy is a critical leadership capability that is in short supply—yet particularly in demand in this moment.
