Saleema Vellani Gives Keynote Address at Centric Day of Innovation

An award-winning researcher, author, and Professor of Entrepreneurship at Johns Hopkins University, Saleema Vellani helps leaders, entrepreneurs, and changemakers increase their influence and amplify their impact through facilitating programs to develop 21st-century skills such as self-awareness, empathy, and resilience. 

Saleema was invited to give the opening keynote address at Centric Indiana's annual Day of Innovation, Indiana's leading full-day innovation conference, held on October 17, 2019 at Butler University. This year's theme was The Power of Together, and included energizing, interactive sessions on inclusion, diversity, collaboration and team building—and how these relate to innovation. 

In her keynote, Inclusion as a Catalyst for Innovation, Saleema covered:

  • How inclusive innovation starts with “I”—with us as individuals—and developing diversity self-awareness
  • How to learn from those we have the least in common with
  • How to embrace divergent thinking and failure
