#PracticeKindness is a global movement around World Kindness Day (on November 13th, 2019) with the intention of discussing, practicing and celebrating our common humanity, kindness and compassion at the workplace and in our personal lives.  The #PracticeKindness events are a chance to bring our community together and to share practices to encourage kindness and connection.

The session, hosted by Priya Kasturi, will be super interactive, and we will:

  • Explore the science of kindness and compassion
  • Practice a mindfulness-based kindness exercise
  • Discuss how to integrate kindness into our lives
  • Act by making a pledge to bring more kindness to the world
