The event was cosponsored by two of the country’s premier institutes for the study of ethics and compassion—SCU’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics and Stanford University’s Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education. Wide press coverage and extensive social media sharing made this a historic event.
