Strength in Diversity Forum

Keynote Speaker

Dr. William DeJean

For over 20 years, Dr. William DeJean has inspired and re-inspired individuals and organisations for the important work they do. His work has helped thousands of people around the world reach their optimal potential.

Dr. DeJean started his career as a high school teacher, inspiring students to become the first in their families to attend university. For his successes, he received numerous recognitions, including being selected Teacher of the Year among 26,000 teachers in San Diego County.

Educators throughout the United State were visiting Dr. DeJean’s classroom. He soon moved to the university level to reach a new level of impact, inspiring current and future educators and leaders, to reach their full potential.

Dr. DeJean, who holds a Doctorate in Education, brings many lenses to the organisations he works with. He has taught at universities in the United States and Australia, he is an internationally recognised researcher, he consults across a range of social service and community organisations, and he is a sought-after keynote speaker, including appearances at TEDx Canberra, Happiness & It’s Causes and the Young Minds Conference.

Innovative organisations across social services started contacting Dr. DeJean to inspire and re-inspire them. As he did with his high school students and educators, he helps them reconnect to their greater purpose, supports their own wellbeing, and reconnects them to the important work they do in our world.
