We are thrilled to announce that Michelle Obama will join us for a moderated conversation at the Dropbox Work In Progress conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, September 25. This inaugural event will feature industry leaders who are shaping the future of work along with Dropbox customers and leadership. Mrs. Obama will talk about how to make work meaningful and fulfilling, finding balance at work, and the importance of advocacy for working parents in a moderated conversation. 

As a transformative First Lady, Mrs. Obama launched and led four key initiatives that continue to shape our communities today: Let’s Move!, to address the challenge of childhood obesity; Joining Forces, to support veterans, service members and their families; Reach Higher, to inspire young people to seek higher education; and Let Girls Learn, to help adolescent girls around the world go to school. We hope you’ll join us to hear Mrs. Obama’s perspective on how to approach today’s working world.

Other speakers will include CEO of Zoom, Eric Yuan, and Dropbox executives Drew Houston, Quentin Clark, and Yamini Rangan. There will also be keynotes and breakout sessions featuring OpenAI co-founder and CTO Greg Brockman, former monk and media personality Jay Shetty, Samin Nosrat, chef and author of Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, fashion designer Dion Lee, and more.
