1. Signature Session: No Limits: A Fearless Design
Kathrine Switzer, Athlete, Advocate, and Commentator
Kathrine Switzer literally broke new ground when she challenged the all-male rule of the Boston Marathon 50 years ago, becoming the first woman to officially register and run the legendary race. It was a run that changed the world. In her inspiring presentation, Switzer shows how designing success is about stepping off the sidelines and into the race, and running—despite blisters, doubt, and risk—across the finish line, knowing that you have the power and determination to do anything.
