Presented by Signe Jung Sorensen, Coach & Consultant – International Development and Todd Vogel, Managing Director, Loom Foundation
Friday and Saturday
How do we understand compassion on an individual and systemic level – and use it to effectively reduce suffering on issues such as climate, social justice and global poverty? Accompany two ACT graduates on their journey to answer these questions. One graduate used conversations and workshops to explore, map and anchor how compassion can be sustained and considered in the international development and public policy sector. Another used bottom-up and top-down practices to help a philanthropy cultivate a compassionate culture that forges interconnection and addresses the asymmetrical power that lives between philanthropists and community members. Together, in this session that includes discussion and reflection, they discuss how their lessons from individual and systemic challenges around the world overlap and diverge.
