Finding Promise with Keisha Whaley
– Hosted at Virtual Meeting
part of a series on Promise
About the speaker
How do you relate to the word “promise?” For me, like many, I was raised to understand a promise was a very serious thing. I made promises. I broke promises. Later in life, I was told I showed promise. That was the thing that impacted me the most—this idea that my own potential could be a pact with the world.
January is a month ripe with public declarations of changes and commitments, so why not explore it this month? In this conversational session, we’ll unpack what a career and even a lifetime of our personal relationship to “promise” means for passions, purpose, and the drive to complete them.

VidHug is an easy-to use web app that enables you to create virtual group hugs to celebrate friends, family, and colleagues. In 2018, our founder created VidHug after trying to compile a birthday montage for his Mom’s 70th and realizing that there had to be a better way! When COVID-19 began to impact our celebrations, VidHug became the go-to app for creating meaningful connections while remaining safely distanced. We’ve delivered over 3 million virtual hugs and are deeply grateful to be able to help each and every VidHug user.
