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.

Keisha Whaley is the founder of Brass Tacks Collective, a full-service branding agency, and BT Foundry, a nonprofit creative experience agency offering paid apprenticeships to creatives entering the industry. In conjunction with her work for the agency, Keisha is also deeply involved in the Dallas community. She’s served on the board of 5 nonprofits and contributed creative work for Union, Café Momentum, the Commit Partnership, Human Rights Initiative of North Texas, Texas Women’s Foundation, TeachDFW, For Oak Cliff, and many others. Her biggest passions include social, racial, and gender equity, experiencing all the food, and being the one living person that knows more about The Golden Girls than Betty White.
