FRESH is an “if not us, who?” kind of crew.
Here’s the truth: we got sick of hearing ourselves complain. As we traveled the conference circuit, we’d often frown about the overwhelming whiteness of panels, tweet about dude-only line-ups, and shake our heads at hearing yet another well-known author repeat the same stale idea from coast to coast. And yet, we also know how hard it can be to curate a really kick-ass conference. Collectively, we’ve collaborated with some of the most celebrated event hosts in the world, including The Aspen Institute, The Clinton Global Initiative, and TED. Which is why we didn’t just want to point fingers; we wanted to make things better. FRESH is our grand experiment in making the public conversation a hell of a lot more interesting.
We also like each other a lot.
