Culture of Empathy Builder:  Joey Katona
 

 Joey Katona & Edwin Rutsch: How to Build a Culture of Empathy in Education

Joey Katona is the Project Manager for the Empathy Initiative (StartEmpathy.org) at the world’s leading social entrepreneurship organization, Ashoka. He leads a small core team working to launch the Empathy Initiative in the US and globally. He participates in the strategic development of the start-up and works to creatively manage the day-to-day operations.

Joey develops ways to help the team stay on track toward its goals -- coordinating, sourcing, and following up on various partner and funder leads and helping manage external relationships. "Start Empathy, is a community of individuals and institutions dedicated to building a future in which every child masters empathy...

Start Empathy is not out to build a single program, curriculum, or silver-bullet fix. Rather, we're working to unleash demand for empathy as a core 21st century skill – collaborating with social entrepreneurs, educators, parents, and key players in the media, business, and academic sectors to make empathy as essential as reading and math in early education. Success will take all of us, and will require rethinking how we parent, educate, and raise our children in a world that is changing faster than ever before. "

  • (Video Transcriptions: If you would like to take empathic action and create a transcription of this video, check the volunteers page.  The transcriptions will make it easier for other viewers to quickly see the content of this video.)

 

To build a culture of empathy:

  • Give the learning of empathy equal credence to math, science, reading, and other traditional subjects in school

  • Make empathy practical: quick exercises/actions that parents, educators, kids, etc. can take to practice applied empathy

  • Heighten the public conversation: convince individual and company mavens to promote empathy through various mediums

  • Ensure people know what we’re talking about!
