Presenter: Sara Schairer & Burrel Poe from Compassion It

As a nonprofit organization and social movement, our mission is to inspire compassionate actions and attitudes.

Everyday Compassion

Experience what happens when you make compassion a part of your everyday life. Our reversible wristband is a visual reminder. Flip it from one side to the other when you 'compassion it.' They come in pairs so that you 'wear one, share one.'




We offer virtual and in-person programs and consultation to support you and your team. Stanford-trained compassion facilitators help you create a more compassionate workplace which combats employee disengagement, burnout, and empathy fatigue.
