Power, Compassion, and Inequality in a Changing World

December 16, 12-1 pm

Free members-only webinar with the GGSC’s Dacher Keltner.

In this free webinar, UC Berkeley psychology professor Dacher Keltner, the GGSC’s faculty director, will detail the latest discoveries on compassion—its neuroscience and practice—and explain how broader social conditions, such as social class and the distribution of power, make for more or less compassionate societies.

Dr. Keltner will present for the first half hour and will answer participants’ questions in the second half hour.

This webinar is for members of the Greater Good Science Center only. If you’re not currently a member, your registration won’t be accepted.
