Poppy Crum - Your Reality Might Not be Mine: Sensory Perception and Empathy

"Poppy Crum is a neuroscientist who uses a delicate and provoking play of shifts in perception to show how human misconnection can be transformed from frustration, misunderstanding, and disagreement, to connection with empathy and tolerance. Giving credence to proverbs that tell us that to really know someone we must walk a mile in their shoes.

"In this talk, Poppy shares how finding these empathetic opportunities every day can make us more human. By challenging our assumptions about why someone else might have a different world view, sensory empathy can inspire innovations and human connections we might otherwise never have found."
