"Empathy is not a soft skill. It’s a business skill. It’s what drives inclusive workplaces, enabling people to work cooperatively with others who have very different experiences, preferences, styles and opinions. And it’s HR’s job to strengthen empathy in the workplace—to close the gap."

Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP

President & Chief Executive Officer, SHRM

"The communities and individuals we represent don’t want your charity. They want an opportunity to show you their extraordinary talents and that they are more than their current circumstances or worst mistake. HR executives can close the gap between what you say you believe in and how you operate everyday. Together, you have the power to build a movement, create a more inclusive economy, and demonstrate that all individuals belong"

Lauren McCann

Co-Founder & CEO, Procure Impact

"Diversity asks "Are they here?".
Inclusion asks "How are they doing? "
