I had the good fortune of sharing about Kindness at Transformation at Anne Firth Murray's class at Stanford earlier this week. The class itself was amazing, about 20 deep thinking undergrad's who decided to take a class called 'Love as a Force for Social Justice'. We started with a period of silence, and the students were deeply engaged throughout, asking questions about how to authentically practice kindness in the business world. For instance, one of the questions brought up - when you are working in a for-profit, how to avoid the kindness equivalent of 'greenwashing'? is it possible to truly act according to ones values in a system that is so opaque and disintermediated? We ended with the class reflecting on the the importance of observation and reflection as a practice. I am amazed that the younger generation includes such deep sensitivity and look forward to have some of the students connect more deeply with the ecosystem going forward!
