The Convergence of Entrepreneurship and Innovation featuring Viola Davis

Tuesday, June 04, 2024
Main Stage Program
Ballroom 20
During the Tuesday Main Stage Program, Viola Davis, a critically revered, award-winning actress, producer, and New York Times bestselling author and moderator Brooke Baldwin, TV host, award-winning journalist, former CNN anchor, and bestselling author will discuss the convergence of entrepreneurship and innovation. During their conversation, Davis will discuss her journey of entrepreneurship and becoming the first black actress to win two Tony Awards (“Fences” & “King Hedley II”), an Oscar (“Fences”), an Emmy (“How to Get Away with Murder”), and ultimately achieving EGOT status by winning a Grammy for the audiobook recording of her memoir “Finding Me.” Davis will also discuss how a 2016 diagnosis of prediabetes —a condition in which blood sugar levels are higher than normal and which can lead to diabetes— and a family history of Type 2 diabetes turned her into an advocate for diabetes education, awareness, and research. As the author of the bestselling book, “Huddle: How Women Unlock Their Collective Power,” Baldwin will apply some of the lessons of empowerment, inspiration, and the strength to enact meaningful change to this dynamic discussion.
