The power of empathy: Anita Nowak at TEDxMontrealWomen

Empathy is the most positively disruptive force on the planet — but only when it leads to Empathic Action. In this talk, we will explore how empathy can be leveraged for the ultimate win-win: personal well-being and social good.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
