Do not miss the upcoming I International Congress ‘Empathy for life and business’

The First International Congress of Empathy is aimed at putting at the center of the debate the importance of empathy to build healthier and happier societies. When media and social networks show bias and confrontation tendencies, we propose to regain the concept of empathy to build healthy organizations, transformative educational systems, sustainable productive processes, humanized health systems and, therefore, better societies.

Join us having a pause for thought about how empathy, from the contributions of neuroscience, can be integrated into the daily life of organizations and individuals.
