Karen Armstrong

Not surprisingly, businesses are leading the growing movement to implement Karen Armstrong's Charter for Compassion, a document that outlines shared moral principles across all religious traditions, and calls for a more understanding and peaceful world.

That's because good business leaders recognize that caring, constructive and supportive environments are core elements of successful organizations.

Join the Vancouver Board of Trade as Armstrong, an esteemed British author and commentator, shares practical and effective ideas for integrating compassion in commerce. This event will inspire more creative, interactive organizations; lead to responsible, ethical practices; and result in positive, lasting impacts on both our businesses and our communities. Armstrong's 20-minute talk will be followed by a moderated "Conversation on Compassion".
