EQ Cafe: Empathy & Belonging

October 11, 2022 @ 4:00 pm 5:30 pm

In these times of multiple crises, polarization and isolation, how can we move together to create new sustainable opportunities and possibilities for individuals and communities? Research says empathy is declining (6sec.org/soh) but isn’t that one of the most essential tools for increasing belonging and connection? Join this free, interactive “EQ Café” event to practice tools that will help us do so.

“Together we must move like waves.

Have you observed the ocean?

The waves are not the same over and over —

each one is unique and responsive.

The goal is not to repeat each other’s

motion, but to respond in whatever

feels right in your body. The waves

we create are both continuous and a

one-time occurrence. We must notice

what it takes to respond well. How

it feels to be in a body, in a whole–

separate, aligned, cohesive.

Critically connected.”

– Adrienne Maree Brown, Emergent Strategy

Emotional intelligence (aka “EQ”) means being smarter with feelings — and we can grow EQ by practicing together. EQ Cafés are insightful, engaging sessions for people curious about emotional intelligence to connect and learn together.

In this Café we will discover:

● Why belonging matters?

● What are some strategies and actions to use empathy to strengthen belonging 

● How can EQ and empathy help us to build sustainable communities?


Anyone interested in learning about and practicing emotional intelligence – the learnable, measurable, scientifically validated skillset we all need to thrive.
