Cultivating Compassion in Your Community
April 10, 2018
11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. (CDT)

When we turn on the TV or radio, or open our social media pages, we see and hear headlines rampant with anger and blame.  Instead of continuing this type of conversation how can we spread compassion? Is there a way that we can cultivate empathy and gratitude in our communities and with each other?  How can we learn from other cultures and practice sharing compassion with our new community members?
Join leadership and civic engagement educators, Lori Rothstein and Denise Stromme, to discover how compassion is vital to communities around the world.  During this free, 90-minute webinar you will explore what compassion is for you, identify compassionate workplaces and organizations, and name the key ingredients for cultivating compassion.  The session will include a self-assessment on compassion and social empathy to deepen your understanding.  Come learn for yourself and for your communities.
