Participants include award-winning journalists and storytellers, renowned artists and creators, civic and nonprofit leaders at the forefront of social justice initiatives, business leaders, tech trailblazers, and executives and performers in the music industry.

Quote from Nic Stone (Creatives ‘22)

There’s this camaraderie that has formed that gave us the space to really affirm each other and support each other—and I think stepping outside of your comfort zone in that way is one of the greatest and easiest ways that you can change your own life.
New York Times bestselling author of Dear Martin and Odd One Out
