Emily Hine has 25 years of experience creating social change through fundraising, philanthropy, marketing and public speaking. She spent many years as a Program Manager in the Law and Corporate Affairs Department at Microsoft Corporation before profound meditation experiences inspired her to dedicate her life to advancing peace and compassion in the world. In 2008, Emily served on the Executive Team for Seeds of Compassion, a global event with the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu that gathered 150,000 people and contributed to the current worldwide compassion movement. While moderating a panel discussion, Emily made a commitment to the Dalai Lama to expand compassion education. She fulfilled her promise and became a CCT Teacher from CCARE and teaches the 8-week CCT protocol. She hosts the Global Compassion Summit – an online educational program designed to inspire, inform and involve a global audience in the compassion movement. Emily is a faculty member of The Shift Network’s Peace Ambassador Training and she leads mindfulness workshops for businesses interested in creating more harmonious work environments.
Her presentation will focus on identifying methods for cultivating compassion and promoting altruism within individuals, across disciplines and society-wide.
