I’m thrilled to announce that Mayor Cory Booker of Newark, New Jersey will keynote at LinkedIn Talent Connect Las Vegas, this October 10-12. Named to TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2011, Mayor Booker is an extraordinary leader: innovative, social media savvy, and devoted to his community.
At LinkedIn, our vision—which we’re committed to realizing—is to create economic opportunity for every professional in the world. Mayor Booker shares that same commitment for his community and for the United States. During his tenure as mayor of New Jersey’s largest city, he has championed job creation and education reform, in addition to initiating programs to reduce violent crime, increase affordable housing, and support high-risk youth in Newark.
