Empathy is the tool that brings Higher Education DEI strategies to life.

Let us integrate into your strategy, like we have for dozens of institutions across the United States.

In interviews with hundreds of DEI directors at universities, we’ve discovered that the largest common challenge is students, staff, and faculty failing to apply the DEI knowledge they’ve been given.

That’s because receiving knowledge doesn’t change mindsets.

Mindsets change through experience.

We are the winners of the Harvard Culture Lab Innovation Fund Grant, co-designed with the President of the Association for Psychological Sciences, and piloted by Ford, Deloitte and Cisco. We’ve shared with 10,000 people in 2020, including a 1,000+ audience at the Boston Museum of Science. Our board of advisors include Lulu Miller, host of Radiolab on NPR, Joel Mier, former Netflix marketing director, and Dr. Lisa Feldman Barrett, top 1% most cited scientists in the world.

We measure and track your progress in empathy over time and can show you that all of these measures lead to stronger teams, more innovation, higher retention rates, and higher performance.

At our core, we’re here to help humans live more fulfilling lives through empathy, by embracing the joy of our differences.

Empathy is skill, not a personality trait.

By being curious - and understanding that we don’t know everything about everyone - we build the active listening skills needed by leaders and teams to have successful collaborative outcomes. We normalize the experience of emotion, and make emotional learning easy and enjoyable.

Our first-person point-of-view experiences draw on robust evidence that immersion is important for evoking emotion and curiosity.

Who we’ve worked with

Out of all the DEI curriculums we’ve seen, this is the one that feels like it gives the tools needed for dialogue, their human dignity and individuality.
