Keynote by Due Quatch with Q&A
Due Quach, author of Calm Clarity: How to Use Science to Rewire Your Brain for Greater Wisdom, Fulfillment and Joy, is the founder and CEO of Calm Clarity, a social enterprise that uses science and mindfulness to help people across the socioeconomic spectrum break self-limiting patterns and become the highest expression of who they can be. She also founded the Collective Success Network, a nonprofit that collaborates with the wider business community to increase socio-economic inclusion by mentoring, supporting, and empowering low-income, first-generation college students to navigate college and enter professional careers. A refugee from Vietnam and a graduate of Harvard College and the Wharton MBA program, Due overcame the long-term effects of poverty and trauma by turning to neuroscience and meditation. She now leads Calm Clarity workshops in inner-city high schools, university lecture halls, and corporate executive boardrooms alike. After living and traveling all around the world, she is once again a proud resident of Philadelphia, her hometown.
