Building Empathy in a Fractured World: Join social neuroscientist and popular author Jamil Zaki to explore how anyone can build empathy to improve their lives, relationships, and even our culture. Levels of empathy are eroding in society, which likely contributes to growing conflict and tribalism. Fortunately, it’s possible to build our empathy muscles to help stem this negative tide. Empathy in action can change our professional, creative, and personal relationships for the better with simple strategies you can start implementing in your own life.
