By the end of the day, participants will have gained valuable tools to successfully navigate their futures and discover their passions, power, and potential.

Keynote Speaker

Listen, Lucy founder, Jordan Corcoran, is a nationally recognized public speaker, author and mental health advocate with a powerful story to share. During her freshman year of college, Jordan was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder. Understanding her diagnosis and learning to cope with her mental illness was not easy. Once Jordan tackled her struggles head on, she bravely created Listen, Lucy to share her lived experiences in an effort to help others and end the stigma surrounding mental health.

Jordan now spends her time traveling the country speaking to college, high school and middle school students. In addition to sharing her very personal and traumatic story sprinkled with compassion and humor, she focuses on the importance of acceptance and kindness. She is the author of Listen, Lucy Volume 1, Write It Out and Little Lucy and the Little Butterflies. Jordan has been featured on Forbes, The Today Show, UpWorthy and many other media outlets. She has shared her story with tens of thousands of people. Her mission is simple: to create a less judgmental and more accepting world.
