Everything you need to make work life better: the lineup you don’t want to miss.
Building the modern workplace requires courage, leadership, and understanding old challenges in new ways. At INSIGHTS, we’ve gathered together a collective of inspiring speakers – trailblazers, innovators, and visionaries – to share their knowledge on what it takes to go beyond status quo. Here’s a list of some of the key thought leaders you don’t want to miss!
Legendary quarterback Peyton Manning, the NFL’s only five-time Most Valuable Player and a 14-time Pro Bowl selection, has earned his place among the greatest quarterbacks in league history as a leader in nearly every statistical passing category. Manning has continued his efforts off the field and was honored as the recipient of the Byron “Whizzer” White Humanitarian Award and the NFL’s Walter Payton Man of the Year in 2005, the Bart Starr Award in 2015, and the Lincoln Medal in 2017. He and his wife, Ashley, established the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 to promote the future success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs that provide leadership and growth opportunities for children at risk. The PeyBack Foundation has provided more than $13 million of impact to at-risk youth through its grants and programs since its inception. He and Ashley have twins—a boy and a girl, Marshall Williams and Mosley Thompson.
Academy Award winner Geena Davis is one of Hollywood’s most respected actors, appearing in several roles that became cultural landmarks. Few have achieved such remarkable success in as many different fields as Davis has: she is not only an Oscar and Golden Globe-winning actor, but a world-class athlete (at one time the nation’s 13th-ranked archer), a member of the genius society Mensa, and is now recognized for her tireless advocacy of women and girls nearly as much as for her acting accomplishments. She is the Founder and Chair of the non-profit Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, which engages film and television creators to dramatically increase the percentages of female characters — and reduce gender stereotyping — in media made for children 11 and under. Davis is also an official partner of UN Women, working toward their goal of promoting gender equality and empowering women worldwide. Davis holds honorary degrees from Boston University, Bates College and New England College.
