Kindness and empathy are different, and both are valuable practices. In this brief animation, we share the definitions of kindness and empathy, outline the four qualities of empathy, and describe why we must practice empathy.
We acknowledge that we gather as Engineer Inclusion in Orange, Texas, on the unceded land of the Ishak (Atakapa), Koasati (Coushatta), and Alabama Peoples. Colonizers excised these indigenous groups from their traditional land through forced removal. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. We invite you to learn more about land acknowledgments here and search for the traditional stewards of the land where you live and work here.
