Thank You for Being Late: An Optimist's Guide to Thriving in the Age of Accelerations | 01/18/17 From massive leaps in technology to ever-increasing globalization to the acceleration of climate change, workplace, politics, geopolitics, and ethics are all going through tectonic shifts.

Top Risks and Ethical Decisions 2017 | 01/10/17 The world is entering a geopolitical recession, i.e. an unwinding of the old global order, says political scientist Ian Bremmer, in his grimmest forecast ever.

GroundTruth's Charles Sennott on the Future of Journalism | 01/06/17 Despite all the challenges, right now is one of the most exciting moments for a new generation to redefine journalism, says Charles Sennott.

Women's Rights are Human Rights: Global Challenges to Reproductive Health | 01/05/17 How will the Trump presidency affect women's rights, not only in the U.S. but around the world?

Don't miss this important discussion.
Against Empathy: The Case for Rational Compassion | 01/04/17 We often think that empathy, our capacity "to feel someone's pain," is the ultimate source of goodness.

Scientific studies show that empathy is a capricious and irrational emotion that can cloud people's judgement and even lead to violence and cruelty.
