Ready to find your purpose and effect change? Workhuman is excited to announce that Issa Rae, Emmy-nominated actress, producer, and writer, will take the stage at Workhuman Live 2024, rounding out the conference’s powerhouse cast of keynotes. In an on-stage fireside chat, Rae will share her own story of finding her focus, fostering connection, and discussing how embracing individuality and acting with purpose is the key to creating change.

Rae has found purpose as a leader; in her roles as a storyteller, entrepreneur, and advocate for social change, she has dedicated herself to championing inclusivity. Her work celebrates authenticity and individuality in the entertainment industry and beyond. As CEO of the production company Hoorae and proud multi-hyphenate, Rae has navigated her career using her purpose as her guide, striving to create positive change in the world. Her focus on this goal can be seen in the many hats she wears—from her latest work in front of camera in Barbie to her commitment to improving living conditions in South Los Angeles.

Leaders constantly face competing priorities, and Rae’s story of purpose and perseverance is one that decision-makers of all disciplines can gain valuable insights from. Rae has created lasting impact in her industry, a skill today’s HR leaders need to have as they wade through a sea of trending buzzwords and strategies that address the symptoms of poor culture management, instead of finding the source. The content at Workhuman Live 2024 is all about FOCUS. Rae’s fireside chat as well as other keynotes– including Brené Brown and Baratunde Thurston – will give HR leaders the tools, connections, and experience they need to stay on the cutting edge of HR.

The event’s unique content tracks rise above the noise, helping attendees concentrate their efforts and see through the side effects of workplace challenges, all the way to the solutions.
