Keynote Address

The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Chris Bashinelli, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, to Lebanese and Italian-American parents. After a decade-long acting career, including an appearance on the HBO hit television show “The Sopranos,” Bashinelli decided to follow his real passion: using media to build bridges between cultures. He now traverses the globe, from Uganda to Haiti, as host of “Bridge the Gap,” a television series featured on PBS and the National Geographic Channel, where he experiences life in someone else’s shoes.

A celebrated speaker on diversity and inclusion, Bashinelli has traveled the world for more than a decade sharing a message of empathy and understanding. He will deliver the keynote address during the Opening General Session on Tuesday, Sept. 19.
