About this video

In this powerful #BIF9 Summit talk, we are taken on a journey through the evolution of gender and sexuality. When the Dalai Lama told James Doty that he believes western women will save humanity, Doty was inspired to explore how this could be true. Doty shows that when feminists challenged institutional discrimination and stepped out of their traditional roles, it not only allowed men to flourish in new roles but advanced the evolution of humanity toward compassion.


James Doty, MD, is a Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurosurgery at Stanford University and the Director of the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education as Stanford University School of Medicine. He completed his undergraduate education at the University of CA, Irvine and medical school at Tulane University. He trained in neurosurgery at Walter Reed Army Medical Center and completed fellowships in pediatric neurosurgery at Children’s Hospital in Philadelphia (CHOP) and in neuroelectrophysiology focused on the use of evoked potentials to assess the integrity of neurological function. His more recent research interests have focused on the development of technologies using focused beams of radiation in conjunction with robotics and image-guidance techniques to treat solid tumors and other pathologies in the brain and spinal cord. He spent 9 years on active duty service in the U.S. Army Medical Corp.
