Is there a place for compassion in professional and institutional settings? What makes a decision compassionate? What individual or institutional benefits can be gained from making decisions based on empathy and altruism? Empathy and Compassion in Society is a forum for professionals to explore what compassion is—and isn’t—and to find out whether it can be cultivated.
Empathy and Compassion in Society 2013 will take place at the London Southbank Centre on Thursday 24 October. It will be followed by post-conference workshops on 25-27 October.
