Ash Beckham is an accidental advocate. A year ago she was living her life as an event entrepreneur before her 2013 TEDxBoulder talk went viral. She speaks about empathy, respect and the power of having real conversations. With funny and poignant personal stories, and a tough yet deeply compassionate stance, Ash tells us how to take off our armor and be our authentic selves. She believes if we can live in a world of duality rather than polarity we can see that our similarities dwarf our differences.
