The theme of the 2021
TEDxCollegePark event is about ensuring an equal future for all.

ESPN Wide World of Sports). He
envisions a world where access to
play is a universal right for all.
What do you do when you are
repeatedly the first or the only?
You break through those ceilings
and pave the way for the others to
follow. Kim Davis is senior executive vice president of social impact,
growth initiatives and legislative
affairs for the National Hockey
League (NHL), which has a particular focus on improving diversity
in the league. The NHL brought
Davis onboard specifically to lead
these efforts. Hear her story from
the South Side of Chicago to board
rooms in New York City as she
shares how you too can take the
small moments in your life and become a " movement maker. "
To inspire the next generation
of leaders. Every single park and
recreation professional I know feels
a strong sense of pride in the impact
they make on people's lives, and often, in the lives of kids. As the father

of an 8-year-old boy, Kiaan, and a
3-year-old girl, Anika, I am particularly mindful of this impact and
the importance of great role models
who can inspire and empower them.
One such role model is Matt Beranek. At the ripe age of 16, he is
an artist and a TikTok influencer
with close to 2 million followers
who will join us to share his message of protecting and preserving
what we have and celebrating the
true superheroes in our lives.
Bringing in a flair for the dramatic is Desire Cardoza, one of the
most recognizable drag queens in
Puerto Rico. Better known as " The
Queen of the Night, " Cardoza will
inject a foot tapping Latin feel into
the event's proceedings.
Zane Robinson, a poet and spoken word artist from Richmond,
Virginia, will look to end the day
on a similarly resounding note.
Ultimately, what we want to do is
open minds to new ideas that people
can feel empowered by and compelled to implement. In the words
of Simon Sinek, thought leader and
superstar in the TED world, " What
good is an idea if it remains an idea?

Try. Experiment. Iterate. Fail. Try
again. Change the world. "

One More Thing...
To make the event as inclusive as
possible, all registration fees have
been waived. Thanks to The Unites
Community Foundation, led by
Communication Service for the
Deaf (CSD), we also will have live
captioning and American Sign Language Interpreters throughout the
event to include members of the
deaf and hard of hearing community in the conversation. We want
to ensure everyone who cares about
inclusion and innovation is at this
virtual table so that, together, we
can all build " An Equal Future. "
