Empathy Conference | Thank You and the Movement Continues in 2022

Updated: Feb 9

The Empathy Conference set out to unite hearts and minds and the goal was accomplished. Attendees were drawn from Central New York, Illinois and Ohio to commit themselves to two-days of growing, conversation and enrichment. Co-organized by Kristin Barrett-Anderson and Coach Sgro, they now share their gratitude (seconds after the closing ceremony) to the sponsors, partners, speakers, guests and have two big announcements.
