About this event

During tough economic times in tech organisations, people may become more focused on their own financial well-being and may have less time, energy, and resources to devote to others. This can lead to a decrease in empathy, as individuals may be less likely to consider the needs and feelings of those around them. This might sound paradoxical to the age old belief that tough times bring people together but modern organisations are based on tournament theory and it is a fight for survival.  

In this culture first panel discussion let us hear from our panel whether this phenomenon is widespread and how can we navigate these times while keeping our inner empathy alive.
