September is Empathy

CreativeMornings is all heart. We have an unwavering passion for face-to-face connections. We believe in the power of people, in walking in someone else’s shoes and seeing through their eyes. Each and every day, our global community challenges us to change our perspectives and inspires us to be better humans.

This month, we’re celebrating Empathy in 123 cities around the world. September’s events are presented in partnership with Shutterstock. The theme was chosen by our Phoenix chapter and illustrated by Scott Biersack, an illustrator & designer who once spent a year writing on a public chalkboard to thank the community who supported his family when they needed it most.

Get ready for a month of amazing and moving talks headed straight for the heart, including:

  • Veronika Scott, the founder of The Empowerment Plan, which designed a self-heating coat for the homeless and employs homeless women (Detroit — join us in welcoming them back!)
  • Audience takes the stage, so that attendees can hear from multiple and diverse voices in their community (Mexico City)
  • Marcy Sutton, a photojournalist & web designer who teaches local women in her community about software (Seattle)
  • Abhay Adhikari, a digital engagement specialist putting his background in human rights to work in the private and public sectors (Berlin)

Find an event near you and we’ll see you in the morning!
