Online Dialogue

We host online Empathy Circles. Some of the our circles are with people who are influencing the public conversation.

We hosted a dialogue before an August 2017 rally in San Francisco between opposing organizers.

We held several Empathy circles with James Damore.

This dialogue is between James Damore and female tech person Indy Young.

Engagement with the Political Process

The Empathy Tent and Bridge USA Berkeley sponsored a Radical Empathy Forum to model a dialogue where listening is valued rather than a more typical competitive style debate.

The Empathy Tent team engages in teaching the Empathy Circle practice to a wide variety of groups both face-to-face and online. This strengthens individual listening skills, spreads the use of structured dialogue practice, and helps to build a culture of empathy.
