About the keynote speakers: 

The day will open with a timely lecture by Isabel Wilkerson, who will address the persistence of racial injustice as a national challenge and what history can teach us as we work to resolve it.  Wilkerson is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author of The Warmth of Other Suns, the New York Times bestseller that tells one of the greatest untold stories of American history, the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities in search of a better life.  A gifted storyteller, Wilkerson captivates audiences and examines what we can glean from the Great Migration to better inform present-day racial issues.

Luke Williams is a globally recognized authority on innovation leadership, author of Disrupt and is passionate about all leaders having the confidence to conceive and execute creative solutions. is Executive Director of the Berkley Entrepreneurship Center and Professor of Innovation at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Recently put on GQ Australia’s Man of the Year list, he’s described as a TED-talker, NYU professor, occasional Apple designer and ‘disruptive thinker’ transforming staid industry practices to achieve success.
