Empathy Makes the World

Diversity, inclusivity, and equity are the ultimate buzzwords in academe right now. Now of them amount to much without the emotional core of empathy.   I wish that my colleagues would practice more empathy with each other and toward me and our students. Pretty grim place to work right now. Ageism rampant.  I have a job, but I know they had rather me not have one.  Recommend a quick skim of Jerry’s collection.

    Thanks for the links (I used to follow Jerry more often than I do now, so a good reminder to circle back on practices). Hang in there. Sounds like cloudy days.
