We’ve heard you loud and clear—the Boris Lawrence Henson Foundation’s 2025 Can We Talk? Symposium–themed Human Centric: The Essence of Presence–is now THREE DAYS of enriching experiences! Your feedback has inspired us to create more opportunities for connection, learning, and growth.


What is Human Centric: The Essence of Presence?

It all begins with you. Step into a journey focused on personal responsibility and accountability, foundational to cultivating meaningful connections with others. Prioritizing self-awareness and introspection paves the way for individuals to be present not only for themselves but also for their families, friends, partners, and communities. This theme underscores that genuine human-centeredness originates internally, radiating outward to positively influence our surroundings. These principles harmonize to advocate a holistic approach where self-development and collective well-being are intertwined.


What to Expect:

Returning for 2025, the Can We Talk? Symposium brings back its beloved offerings from last year, including general sessions, fireside chats, a welcome networking reception, an interactive exhibit hall, and the iconic BoBo’s themed party—a celebration with a purpose.
