Engineering Empathy strives to give coders of all genders the knowledge and emotional skills to cultivate inclusive work environments. The program consists of six core units: feedback and teamwork, diversity and allyship, resilience and the inner critic, empathy and authenticity, navigating difficult conversations, and team dynamics. During these sessions, students are taught how to communicate and effectively engage with other people—including people unlike themselves. They also dive into the nuances of discrimination, privilege, and oppression, and explore how subtle forms of bias, such as so-called microaggressions (defined as everyday verbal—and nonverbal—slights that communicate negative messages) can amass into an unwelcoming atmosphere. Many of these sessions involve pairing off to practice handling sensitive conversations.
