Leading with Empathy: Why It’s More Important than Ever to Build Bridges Between People

KIND’s healthy snack bars are ubiquitous, but most people aren’t as familiar with the not-only-for-profit company’s social mission, which is rooted in founder & CEO Daniel Lubetzky’s heritage and desire to build bridges between people. In this keynote, KIND’s Head of Communications, Drew Nannis, speaks about Pop Your Bubble, the latest manifestation of KIND’s commitment to inspiring kindness and helping people develop empathy towards one another. Through Pop Your Bubble, The KIND Foundation has connected Americans who are different – geographically, generationally and in opinion. Since the digital tool launched in April, nearly 60,000 unlikely connections have been fostered. The effort is timely, as polarization levels continue to climb and Americans seek ways to understand different perspectives. Drew gave the SB audience a way to take action in their own lives, while also offering a glimpse at what’s next as KIND vows to double down on its mission.
