Empathable helps leaders, teams and communities apply empathy better, and faster, measurably driving performance. Immersive and backed by world-class scientists, Empathable's short-burst videos are based on real life experiences that your team can integrate back into their own day to day.

EXPERIENTIAL: Empathable creates the link between concept and reality, allowing participants to feel supported in areas like mentorship, one-on-ones, feedback, and DEI topics. The nuances of diverse identity features are woven into the learning itself – through Empathable, participants are immersed in real moments and interactions: leader to employee, team member to peer, human to human.

NO RIGHT OR WRONG: We believe in positive empowerment. Our experience is not meant to define what’s right or wrong for you. Instead, you have the opportunity to take a Walk in someone else’s shoes in less than 5 minutes. With our psychology-based reflection questions, learn how to examine your reactions to these moments, and then apply your learning to daily life.

REAL, NOT DRAMATIZED: Our experiences are created based on the lives of real people. We never use hypothetical situations. We recreate pivotal moments in the lives of these knowledge holders, so they can be shared and passed on, at scale.

EASY, REFLECTIVE, AND SOCIAL: In just 5 minutes, experience a Walk, take time to reflect in-app, then build connections with those experiencing the app with you.

MEASURABLE: We provide teams with measurements of progress throughout your engagement.

I - a Black, queer, low-income, first-generation college student
K - a Black trans man

Empathable is backed by top scientists in the fields of social science, psychology, and bias intervention and has impacted more than 15,000 people to date, showing measurable increases in belonging, psychological safety, and retention across dozens of organizations including Meta, Ford, Target, and Cisco.

Most learning is box-checking, cerebral information, designed for compliance, then forgotten. It doesn’t change anything. This is because "...behavior change occurs through...making meaning of another's experience. [This is] long recognized as a key driver in a team's success."
- Harvard Business School

A memorable experience

Using and working with Empathable was honestly a dream from a leadership perspective. My team and I were able to really gain a deeper understanding of each other, while also further expanding our own individual perspective. I think the different paths that the app takes you on are also super easy to navigate, which makes the lessons even more impressionable since we all learned them as a team. Overall, my experience with apps of this nature in the past consisted of disorganized user interfaces or poor content, and I was pleasantly surprised to experience neither with Empathable.

So necessary

How rare and precious for something to be put into the world that is as thoughtfully crafted as it is socially significant; as grounded in rigorous scientific principles as it is emotionally sensitive; as personally meaningful as it is outwardly impactful. We would all do well to do the work of looking inward to shine light on patches of our emotional landscape that are so easy to leave unexamined, but have such an outsize effect on the way our energy and intention diffuse into the people and the world around us. This program plants a seed of change in our organizations and relationships that is desperately needed. I'm grateful it exists. Give it a try, and spread the word!

Eye Opening

This app has been so helpful on my own journey to self discovery. I’ve loved the opportunity to grow and become a better human through the flow this app takes you through. I found it very user friendly and the design took me to a calmer space each time I opened it. Thank you for allowing me the space to learn about others life experiences through this app!
