The word empathy was the one Sue Gardner chose to use too. I would
rather see something like "respect" instead. Any of us might lack
empathy with someone from a very different cultural background to our
own, this does not mean that we cannot respect their viewpoint or
their culture.

If someone lacks respect for a different culture, that is truly
shameful. Someone who lacks empathy for others is unfortunate and may
always have difficulty understanding context no matter how loudly
others shout at them.
