The Jenerosity Foundation Lecture

Braving the Wilderness

As human beings, we have a primal desire to feel part of something — so what does it take to be our true selves and not just fit in with the crowd?
Find out from New York Times-bestselling author and professor Brené Brown, whose TED talk “The Power of Vulnerability” has earned 28 million views. In her powerful new book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone, Brené redefines our understanding of community and connection in an age of increased polarization. This important and timely new book offers us the clarity and courage we need to brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism and find our way back to ourselves and to each other.

Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, where she holds the Huffington Foundation-Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past sixteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy and is the author of three No. 1 New York Times bestsellers – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly and Rising Strong. Brené’s TED talk – The Power of Vulnerability – is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 30 million views. In addition to her research and writing, Brené is the Founder and CEO of BRAVE LEADERS INC – an organization that brings evidence-based courage building programs to teams, leaders, entrepreneurs, change makers and culture shifters. Brené lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband, Steve, and their children, Ellen and Charlie.
