Generocity is serving as a media partner for TEDxPhiladelphia salon events.
“Remember that moment that changed everything? The moment that triggered you to move from accepting the status quo to relentlessly fighting for what you believed in?”

So introduces the next TEDxPhiladelphia discussion-based salon event theme: “Crossover Moments: From Ordinary People to Extraordinary Leaders.”

The featured speaker will be Movita Johnson-Harrell, District Attorney Larry Krasner’s interim supervisor of victim services and the founder of the anti-violence-focused CHARLES Foundation, named for a murdered son.

“She has a great story to tell about a defining moment that paved the way for her leadership,” wrote TEDxPhiladelphia volunteer organizer Camilia Aberra in an email.

Sulaiman Rahman, who cofounded DiverseForce on Boards, a University of Pennsylvania-hosted board leadership development program that just announced its 2018-2019 cohort members, will facilitate.
