In this episode, our host, Niveen Sayeed, is talking to Elsa Gomes Bondlow about the journey and purpose of Emplify. Emplify’s mission is to broaden the mindsets of individuals by helping them understand their own biases, expand their world views and reduce the emotional burden of this work on those who are already marginalized.
Since empathy is the basis of all of Emplify’s work, they discuss this current buzzword of empathy in detail. Why it is vital to society and how it plays a role specifically in the current workplace. They talk about the importance of balance between exhibiting empathy for others
– which is transformative during this pandemic- and how to avoid empathy fatigue. The show ends with tips for cultivating empathy across a globally interconnected world.
