Today is Character Day: Check Out a Short Film Explaining What That Means

In December, I wrote about Tiffany Shlain, whom I had met at the TED Women conference. Tiffany was promoting a film project "The Science of Character" and an event—Character Day, March 20, 2014. The film and the event are all about developing more positive human characteristics in our school children. To learn more about the project, you can check out their website here.

Time flies, and today is #CharacterDay, and Tiffany and her organization are reaching out around the globe to get students thinking about character. Over 1500 schools and non-profits are participating. Screenings span over 7 continents, 40 countries and all 50 U.S. states. And here is the film. It's thought-provoking work about universal character traits that we share.
