About EQ Cafes:
Are you attending EQ cafe for the first time? EQ Cafés are insightful, fun sessions for people curious about emotional intelligence to connect and learn together. Normally Cafeés are in-person, but at this time, many people around the world are in a challenging situation where they can’t meet together… so we’ve created this virtual-café to support people to keep connected and keep practicing emotional intelligence.
EQ Cafes are a Six Seconds initiative. Six Seconds is an international nonprofit organization with a mission to equip a billion people to practise emotional intelligence.
