General Session and Keynote: Learning Beyond Barriers: Authentic Connections that Inspire Hope, Community and Creativity
As globally connected as we hope to be, there are plenty of barriers, real or internal, that often keep us from moving forward. As someone who often speaks on the importance of inclusion and diversity, I too have had to face my own barriers and in my case, biases which created hard lines that inhibited my own learning and growth. In this talk, I hope to share my journey and inspire others to break the mental and physical barriers that often keep us from moving ahead in a world far too technologically advanced to remain stagnant...all shared through the lens of digital, creative and connected equity.
