Announcing your keynote speakers for the 2020 Super Conference:
Wednesday’s Keynote: Farrah Khan
|At the 2018 G7 Summit, as co-chair of the Gender-Equity Committee, Farrah Khan was called to speak on behalf of the council, in the room with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, President Donald Trump, German chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders and council representatives. She shared that you cannot talk about the economy and a thriving, sustainable, peaceful and healthy world without talking about gender equality. Armed with passion and compassion, she helps organizations recognize and address the needs for gender equality, consent culture, addressing harassment, gender-based violence, bystander intervention, trauma and disclosures.|
Thursday’s Keynote: Mona Chalabi
|Mona Chalabi is a journalist who really loves numbers. She is the Data Editor of The Guardian where she writes articles, produces documentaries, and illustrates, as well as animates data. After analyzing statistics for the United Nations, Mona Chalabi saw how important data was, but also how easily it could be used by people with their own specific agendas. Since then, her work for organizations like Transparency International and The Guardian has had one goal: to make sure as many people as possible can find and question the data they need to make informed decisions about their lives. She gives speeches and teaches courses on data journalism, and when she can, she illustrates data. Her illustrations have been exhibited by the Design Museum and were commended by the Royal Statistical Society, of which they said, “Her deceptively simple graphs are fun and accessible.”|
Friday’s Keynote: Choir! Choir! Choir!
|Choir! Choir! Choir! has sung with Tegan and Sara at the Junos, performed at a David Bowie tribute in New York, and have even taken to the Radio City Music Hall stage with Debbie Harry and The Flaming Lips. A collective led by creative directors Nobu Adilman and Daveed Goldman, the group has amassed a dedicated and passionate community of singers, along with a thriving international fan base on YouTube and beyond. Acclaimed for the ways in which the group brings music alive, its true importance may lie in something much more fundamental: it brings people — of all walks of life — together. Founded in 2011, Choir! Choir! Choir! requires no auditions – everyone is welcome. Daveed and Nobu share the choir’s story with audiences, explaining how being open can lead to great achievements, and how singing with one another can bring teams closer than ever.|
