The Power of Compassion for Inclusion: 3 workshops designed to help leaders release their potential to make a difference

Our innate instinct to show compassion when we see others in distress or difficulty is an important part of what makes us human. At the same time, it is also humanly possible to be selective with our compassion resulting in inequitable treatment and outcomes. This can be due to a range of different factors, and during these workshops we explore, what can impede compassion and also ways to expand our innate compassion to contribute to building inclusive mindsets, practices and cultures. Learning how simple everyday changes can make a real difference.

Who’s it for?

This session is aimed at leaders working in the London region.
