EMPATHY WEEK INTERN

Calgary was home to the world’s first Empathy Week in June 2017. The week included interactive, multimedia programming and events, staged at various locations throughout Calgary, that promoted and heightened individuals’ capacity for empathy, connection and the recognition of our shared humanity. All the events were well attended with many sold-out or close to capacity and very enthusiastic feedback from participants.

The 2nd Annual Empathy Week is scheduled for June 1-7, 2018. Humainologie, at the Calgary Centre for Global Community, plans to increase participation, both from collaborators and partners and from the public to make a broader impact. 

The Empathy Week Intern will work closely with the Empathy Week Coordinator to support planning and logistics and ensure a smoothly running event. The internship will run from November 2017 through the end of June, 2018.

The intern needs to have highly developed organizational skills; flexibility and adaptability as deadlines and plans change; good communication skills, both written and interpersonal; and a keen interest in promoting awareness of empathy in a wide range of situations.

This opportunity is expected to run from November 15, 2017 through June 15, 2018. Application closing date is November 10, 2017. Please include a cover letter and your CV emailed to hello@humainologie.com

What's Your story?

Everyday, all the time, we are all playing key roles in our corners of the world. A moment of eye contact, a smile, an extra question like "so how are you?", a pause to hold the door open, a few words to validate how someone is feeling...there are things we can do all the time to remind each other we belong, we are valued, we are part of this great and diverse human family. Tell us about something small or big that you did, or that happened to you, where the result was a sense of connection, belonging, or the recognition of our shared humanity.
