Keynote Speaker:

Our keynote speaker will be three-time Golden Globe winner Laura Dern, a critically acclaimed actress of film and television. Laura has proven to be one of the great actresses of her generation showing that she is capable of great depth and range, touching audiences and critics alike with her moving and heartfelt performances.  She appeared in such iconic films as Jurassic Park and Rambling Rose for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination. Most recently, Laura starred in the award-winning and critically acclaimed HBO series “Enlightened,” which she also co-created and executive produced. Laura brings a different perspective to the lectern, speaking on how her life experiences have propelled her to become an advocate for women’s empowerment, gender equality, and balancing the delicate scales of work, life, and family.
