Expanding empathy to accelerate the advancement of humanity
“To address our world's 'empathy deficit' (Barack Obama), we need to find ways for individuals and communities to understand and care about others whose beliefs, values or language might be different from their own -- so that we embrace humanity's global challenges together.”
- TEAM EMPATHY
The Roddenberry philosophy – valuing diversity, inclusivity and respect for every life form – is driven by a belief in humanity’s potential for empathic understanding. The Foundation puts this belief into action by supporting innovative solutions to our most pressing global problems.
