Webinars: Exponential Equity: The Future of Work is Emotionally Intelligent

Singularity University’s Women’s Impact Network (WIN) is thrilled to present a dialogue on emotional intelligence in the future of work. WIN passionately works to increase access to the information and tools that enable communities around the world to support women and female-identifying folks in achieving their highest potential.

To meet these aims, WIN offers an Exponential Equity Webinar series featuring people working on solutions related to gender, diversity, inclusion, justice, and equity—and thoughts on how to scale these efforts exponentially.

This webinar addresses how exponential technology provides new opportunities to design for a broad spectrum of human emotions, including empathy, vulnerability, and heightened emotional intelligence in the future of work.

We’ll engage in a lively panel discussion highlighting the ways we can create a more abundant future of work where diversity—including diversity of emotional expression—is celebrated.


At Singularity University, we are united in our common purpose to empower a diverse global community of nearly 200,000 leaders, entrepreneurs, and inspired solvers working to tackle humanity’s most urgent challenges and achieve success in an era of unprecedented disruption. We support our community and clients through empathy and acceptance, and we are cultivating a new kind of customer hero through our innovative and transformative programs. Fulfilling our mission entails a commitment to inclusivity, diversity, and genuine acceptance.

To that end, we will hire, promote, work alongside, cheer for, bond with, and warmly welcome into the SU family all persons without regard to ethnic and racial identity, indigenous heritage, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, marital status, veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status.
