Allison Williams to Headline MCON 2017
You probably know her best as ‘Marnie’ in the acclaimed HBO series GIRLS and the star of NBC’s live action Peter Pan Live. Or you might have seen her recently as ‘Rose’ in Get Out, a new horror-satire film from first-time director Jordan Peele that’s gathered praised from Time to Variety and more (and even racked up a whopping 99% rating on Rotten Tomatoes).
But what you might not know about Allison Williams is her passion for doing good and inspiring social change. It’s those roles – activist and ambassador – that especially have us so excited to welcome Allison as an MCON 2017 speaker.
In addition to her work with (RED), an organization that raises funds to combat HIV/AIDS in the Sub-Saharan Desert, Allison is an ambassador for Horizons National, a tuition-free academic and community program proven to close opportunity and achievement gaps for low-income children. Her MCON 2017 talk will address such issues in education – and how important it is for millennials to be part of the solution.
