We're so excited to share that Emmy award-winning actress and producer and LGBTQ+ activist Laverne Cox will keynote the highly anticipated Open conference in New York City on May 24 – 25, 2022.

This year’s Greenhouse Open conference will focus on thought-provoking perspectives and important topics shaping the world of work. Workshop tracks and mainstage sessions will offer practical advice and inspiring talks, many of which will be shared through the lens of Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) and how to apply inclusive behaviors and thinking to all aspects of hiring.

Greenhouse is honored to host Laverne Cox as our mainstage keynote speaker. One of the most recognizable names in television, Laverne has always been a champion for diversity and inclusion. Not only was Laverne the first Trans woman of color to have a leading role on a mainstream scripted show, she was also the first transgender person nominated for an Emmy. Laverne will join Daniel Chait, Greenhouse CEO and co-founder, in an exploratory conversation about her passions, her commitment to promoting inclusion and the importance of helping all people realize their fullest potential.

Laverne is a symbol of resilience. Her undeniable commitment to equality is an inspiration to companies who are trying to match their own DE&I commitments with action. Laverne’s experience as a pioneer in Hollywood is inspiring and a reminder to all of us to strive to be the very best versions of ourselves in work and in life.
– Greenhouse CEO, Daniel Chait

Psychologist and New York Times-bestselling author, Daniel Goleman, and Tony-award winning director and writer, Rachel Chavkin, will also feature as mainstage keynote speakers during the conference. Daniel will bring his research on behavioral sciences to life and share how emotional intelligence impacts business performance. Rachel will talk about diversity through the lens of her own creative work in theater, reflecting on what diversity means from a multitude of perspectives including how inclusive teams create innovative work.

Open attendees will have the chance to gain practical, hands-on learning in workshop tracks to develop key recruiting skills using Greenhouse.
