About the Podcast

Social-emotional skills, such as empathy, emotion management, and positive communication, are important inside and outside classroom walls. Their impact continues long after students leave school and enter society. Grow Kinder is a first-of-its-kind social-emotional learning podcast featuring conversations with thought leaders in education, business, tech, and the arts who all have one thing in common: a dedication to growing kinder and helping others do the same.

We want to hear from you! Get in touch with the Grow Kinder team here.
