Keynote Speaker: Irshad Manji

Irshad Manji is founder of the Moral Courage Academy, a global leadership studio and sanctuary based in Hawaii. She has previously taught at New York University and the University of Southern California.

Manji’s latest book, Don’t Label Me, is being published by St. Martin’s Press in March 2019. It is a provocative take on diversity that will inspire many of us to rethink how we view each other — and ourselves.

Born in Uganda, raised in Canada, Manji is the bestselling author of two previous books about the need for reform within her faith of Islam. The New York Times calls her “Osama bin Laden’s worst nightmare.” She can live with that label.
