Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)

Main Stage

Sense-making is something that happens in community. That’s a core belief for Dan Cardinali, President and CEO of Independent Sector, so he’s devoted his opening remarks to helping make sense of what lies ahead. How do you create a three-day event that offers nearly 300,000 different pathways … and what’s the point of it all? Dan offers his take on the who, why, and where of this journey that we’re embarking upon as a community of changemakers.

Dan will be joined by the American Indian Center for a land acknowledgement that recognizes and respects Indigenous Peoples as the original stewards of the land, and reminds us of the unwavering relationship between Indigenous Peoples and their traditional territories.

Check out our Q&A with Heather Miller to learn more about the opening land acknowledgment.
