"The biggest deficit that we have in our society and in the world right now is an empathy deficit. We are in great need of people being able to stand in somebody else's shoes and see the world through their eyes."
At this Grad Hack, our aim is to tackle this deficit.
We believe sharing knowledge, emotions and experiences can help make teams better.
Together we want to find innovative ways to:
...make group work not suck?
...make collaboration easier?
...make work more human again?
We are looking thinkers, innovators, makers, and leaders, to learn more about empathy, and build a way to reduce the empathy deficit.
What to expect-
Work together in teams to create/conceptualise something that will make teams better. There will be a variety of stations with mentors focusing on different areas including design, coding, ideation. Come learn, share and meet new people while coming up with innovative ideas that can shape the future.
