In these stressful and changing times, now may be a moment for us to “exhale”.

The emerging promise of vaccines, the changes in Washington, and our hopes for evolving lifestyles in the months ahead make us want to take a deep breath and “exhale”.

Join hosts Elliott Masie and Telly Leung for a special Empathy Concert & Conversations on Monday, February 1st at 4:00pm EST. “Exhale” will be the focus of our performances and dialogues with Broadway and TV Artists and Learning Colleagues from around the world. The need for hope, connection, authenticity, and dreams is so important now – in our workplaces, families, and communities.

We invite you and your colleagues to our 27th Empathy Concert, to be held on Monday, February 1st, from 4 - 5 pm EST.

You will hear Mandy Gonzalez, star of Hamilton and In the Heights, perform “Breathe”. Learning Leader Eddie Turner and my co-host Telly Leung, star of Aladdin, will explore the role of empathy with colleagues as we move towards hope for changes.
