"Compassion in Action": Empathy as a Path to Inclusivity
The pursuit of a “more just and compassionate world” begins with recognizing the personal power we have to create inclusive communities. In a 2014 TEDxBeaconStreet Talk, Vera Myers, the Vice President of Inclusion Strategy at Netflix, stated, "diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance." This workshop not only recognizes the power each participant has to invite someone to ‘dance’; we also will consider how we can ensure that everyone feels empowered enough to plan the party. Through writing exercises, small group conversation, and storytelling, we will work on strategies to identify, acknowledge, and celebrate our differences, while recognizing the "inherent dignity of each person."
