This past weekend, several of our top speakers spoke at SXSW, an annual conference dedicated to bringing diverse topics and people together. Our speakers talked about a variety of hot topics in the world. In case you missed it, here are the top five highlights from this week!
Juneteenth is the new federal holiday that marks the end of slavery. On June 19, we celebrate the strides we've made towards racial justice. We're proud to represent many leading speakers who illuminate the history of this celebration, celebrate the resilience of Black communities, and help us build a better future.
Devices that use Artificial Intelligence to track our brains are already being used worldwide, and this is just the beginning.

June is Pride Month, and October is LGBT History Month—two occasions that offer us the chance to take inspiration from the immense contributions and achievements of the LGBTQ+ community. Lavin is proud to represent an incredible roster of LGBTQ+ speakers who celebrate queer joy and resilience.

Every year during Hispanic Heritage Month, from September 15th to October 15th, we celebrate the Hispanic and Latinx leaders and communities whose contributions have made this country what it is. This year, we want to help you bring one of our incredible speakers to your campus or organization.
Generative AI is already changing the way we think about work, the economy, investments, education, and society at large. It promises to be more disruptive than the internet itself.

As the school year winds down, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about your events for the Fall 2023 semester.
