Workshops – Women and the Future of Work
The future of work is now. Today’s disruptive events, social movements, shifting paradigms, and technological advancements have created a state of flux in the workplace, affecting how, when, and where we work. The quickening pace of change means that it’s more critical than ever for organizations to foster flexibility, inclusion, and people skills, such as empathy. Institutions and leaders who create more human, inclusive, and flexible workplaces that work for everyone become more resilient, gaining a competitive advantage in the future of work.

- Empathy is the skill of showing care, concern, and understanding to the life experiences of others. It empowers people to pause, acknowledge, and appreciate others’ thoughts and feelings. Empathy is also the foundation for creating an equitable, inclusive, flexible, and remote-work environment for your organization.
- Catalyst research finds the skill of empathy has positive business outcomes for your organization and your employees, such as increased engagement, innovation, and inclusion, and decreased burnout and intent to leave.
- Empathy training focuses your leaders on bridging the empathy gap—when leaders mistakenly think they are better at exhibiting empathy than their employees perceive them to be. This will help your leaders create connections and support the lived experiences of your workers, positioning your organization to better weather rapid change as the paradigm shifts around life and work.
