Event description

Description

SoFi Accelerate is a career retreat that helps you determine a path for your long-term professional goals. By the end of the day, you’ll have a firm grasp on where you want to go and what you need to do to get there.

This event is free for SoFi members—plus a guest!

Work hand-in-hand with SoFi career coaches to plan for your future. Hear from inspiring speakers like Ryan Holiday and Adam Foss as they share insights for turning your most ambitious career dreams into reality. Watch artist Allison Kunath transform your ambitions into a large-scale mural in real time.

  • Adam FossAdam Foss is an Assistant District Attorney and is one of the leading voices for compassion in the criminal justice system today. He’s teamed up with John Legend to form the Prosecutor Integrity Institute, which empowers prosecutors to make more data-driven, informed decisions with an eye toward ending mass incarceration. He is the co-founder of Roxbury CHOICE Program, a collaborative effort between defendants, the court, the probation department, and the District Attorney to recast probation as a transformative experience rather than a punitive process. “We think Adam’s one of the civil rights leaders of our time,” Legend’s manager said of Foss. “He’s going to go a long way toward effecting a positive change.”
  • Ryan HolidayRyan Holiday is the editor-at-large for the New York Observer, the former Director of Marketing for American Apparel, a media strategist, an entrepreneur, and an author. Starting his career working with Tucker Max (the father of fratire), Holiday has authored five books, including The Obstacle Is the Way, Ego Is the Enemy, and The Daily Stoic. His books have been widely read, by businessmen and athletes alike, including the US Olympic Team. Holiday has also worked as an advisor for large companies, such as Google and Complex, and for individuals, such as Tim Ferriss and Tony Robbins.
