In New York, Heart’s Home USA seeks to pos­i­tively impact cul­ture by nur­turing a dis­course linking con­tem­po­rary issues with the human expe­ri­ence. That is the goal of this roundtable dis­cus­sion on busi­ness and com­pas­sion. We want to address what appears to be one of the major flaws of our con­tem­po­rary cul­ture: that our economy lost sight of the human ele­ment. The finan­cial crisis that began in 2008 calls for a dis­course on the human aspect of economy, as well as to new and cre­ative ways to sen­si­tize people and orga­nize society. Our wish is to address this gap and the pos­sible ways to bridge it through both fun­da­mental reflec­tion and actual expe­ri­ences.

The first por­tion of the two-hour con­fer­ence will con­sist of indi­vidual addresses from each pan­elist on the topic of busi­ness and com­pas­sion. The second por­tion will be in the format of an open dis­cus­sion, with the pan­elists taking ques­tions from the audi­ence.
