T1W 2023 Keynote Speakers

Wajahat Ali

How do we build a compassionate and inclusive America in an age of distrust? Wajahat Ali knows from personal experience that when we come together to be the superheroes of our own stories, we can create honest social change. The beloved TED speaker has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, and The Atlantic about our urgent issues—immigration, politics, parenthood—with boldness, hope, and humor. His memoir Go Back to Where You Came From, one of Amazon’s Best Books of the Year, follows his life as a Muslim Pakistani-American on a surprising, emotional, and challenging quest for the good life. Iconic journalist Katie Couric says that “we are all so fortunate to be on the receiving end of his intellect, his humanity, and his heart.”

REV. Traci D. Blackmon

Rev. Traci Blackmon is Associate General Minister of Justice and Local Church Ministries for the United Church of Christ, a denomination inspired by God’s grace to welcome all, love all, and seek justice for all through God-centered action, Christ -driven connection, and Spirit- led leadership.

Blackmon’s voice is featured on many local, national, and international platforms spanning the breadth of the White House to the Carter Center to the Vatican, as well as several documentaries and print publications. She currently serves as pastor in residence for Eden Theological Seminary in Webster Groves, MO.

Seifert – Business Leader – T1W 2023 Conference Co-Chair

“I think it’s a really innovative idea to focus on diversity, equity and inclusion for the whole state. And to have all these different tracks where over the course of the conference there will be multiple speakers and people can do a deep dive into areas where they want to build their own knowledge.” – Chad Hershner – President and CEO – Special Olympics Wisconsin

“One of the things that I always look forward to with the Toward One Wisconsin is having courageous conversations about difficult topics that we as a state have ignored for hundreds of years.” – Mai J. Lo Lee – Director – Multi-Ethnic Student Affairs Office – UW-Green Bay

“I start to think of people in the community who would benefit from sharing what they do for the community, and be able to share those successes and just to really highlight the diversity. There is so much beauty in that. When you educate yourself and you open up your mind and heart to other perspectives, that’s how we grow.”  – Aida Bice – Director – Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Services – Family Health La Clinica

“But we can no longer put off building the foundation for a cohesive society in our state. We must begin in earnest to adopt diverse and inclusive policies and practices.

The fact is, as our nation has become more racially and ethnically diverse, Wisconsin has lagged behind.” – Richard Poirier, J.D. – President and CEO – Church Mutual Insurance Company – Toward One Wisconsin Founder

“With this conference there are so many important topics that are going to be discussed. We’re talking about immigration, talking about the workforce, the economy.” – Jessica Cavazos – CEO – The Wisconsin Latino Chamber of Commerce – Toward One Wisconsin 2021 Co-Chair

“The Toward One Wisconsin Conference aims to bring folks together across different perspectives and different sectors to really think about our opportunities to build bridges for collective well-being.” – Paula Tran Inzeo – Senior Health Equity Advisor – UW Population Health Institute – Toward One Wisconsin 2020 Co-Chair

“We are at a stage in our history, as we look to the future, where we need to rely on people coming to our state to keep our economy chugging along and to meet our state’s workforce needs. And to make this the wonderful welcoming state that we all know it is.” – Dave Anderson – Senior Fellow – Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service
