Community Speaker Series

The Community Speaker Series, presented by D86, D181 & the D181 Foundation, is excited to announce its 2021/22 season!

10/5/21, 7:00 pm: Jamil Zaki, “The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World”

Jamil Zaki is a professor of psychology at Stanford University and the director of the Stanford Social Neuroscience Lab. Using tools from psychology and neuroscience, he and his colleagues examine how empathy works and how people can learn to empathize more effectively.

In The War for Kindness, he weaves together the latest science with engaging real-world stories, offering us a revolutionary perspective on empathy and how to develop it as a skill. He shows that kindness is not a sign of weakness but a source of strength. With warmth, wit and straightforward exercises that can be swiftly implemented, Zaki shows audiences of all ages how to change their professional, student, creative and personal relationships for the better.

The webinar is free and open to all. If you are interested in attending, please register in advance by using the registration link below:
