The Power of Empathy

For the first time ever on MasterClass, a diverse range of our instructors come together to talk about the power of empathy and how it can transform the way you view the world. This series features artists, activists, and leaders Pharrell Williams, Robin Arzón, Roxane Gay, Walter Mosley, Robert Reffkin, Gloria Steinem, and Cornel West as they share their experiences with empathy and its importance in their lives and careers. The Power of Empathy combines multiple interviews with personal and historical archival material and researched-based statistics to showcase empathy in multiple facets of life.

Jessica edited this unique course for MasterClass in 2021, and was heavily involved in post-production and developing the first multi-instructor format for MasterClass.
