Posted By Administration, Wednesday, July 8, 2020

“Innovation” means something different this year. Join us to explore the courageous innovations that will inspire our teams and companies to grow and thrive — no matter what is going on in the world around us. Our annual Innovation Conference is always about experimentation and breaking barriers, so we hope you’ll join us for our first ever virtual, interactive conference. The programming will take place over two afternoon sessions on July 23rd-24th to make it work with your schedule more easily.

You will experience:

  • A powerful fireside keynote with Shannon Watts, founder of Moms Demand Action, and Julius Thibodeaux, Violence Disrupter, in conversation with Jessica Aguirre
  • Dynamic interactive keynote sessions with Frans Johanssan, CEO and Innovation expert of Medici Group, and Nora Herting, Founding CEO of ImageThink
  • Practical approaches to redesigning work to support everyone's humanity, with Airbnb's Head of Global Diversity and Belonging Melissa Thomas-Hunt, diversity and inclusion consultant Lily Zheng, and MIT Sloan School of Management professor and researcher Erin Kelly, moderated by Workday Chief Diversity Officer Carin Taylor
  • Facilitated conversational breakouts with other attendees about the impact you can have on the future of work
  • Inspirational moments and conversations with artists who address equity, social responsibility and breaking down systemic racism in their work, including choreographer, director and dancer Robert Moses of the award-winning Robert Moses’ Kin, and Blaxican poet, artivist, and author ofFist & Fire Leslé Honoré
  • Meaningful and engaging real-time chat with other attendees and speakers throughout the conference
  • Lively virtual networking spaces to build your connections


In the coming days and weeks, we will highlight our speakers and share more ideas to spark your thinking about innovation and change.
