The Festival of Faiths will host “Compassion in the Workplace,” a panel discussion that will illustrate how compassionate business models benefit corporate America. James Doty, M.D., founder and director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University (CCARE) of which His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the founding benefactor, will be the keynote speaker for this event. He will be joined by local business leaders who are known for their business acumen and their compassionate work settings, such as Bridgeman Foods CEO Junior Bridgeman, Spalding University President Tori Murden McClure and Signature Healthcare Vice President of Spirituality Dianne Timmering. Area CEOs, business owners and human resource managers are encouraged to attend.
Topics for discussion will focus on the necessity to define compassion as a core value of a business’ strategic plan, examples of successful local compassionate business models and how you can be a champion of compassion in your workplace.
