SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (June 28, 2023) – Motivated by kindness and positivity, Shola Richards will take the stage at Emergency Nursing 2023 as the keynote speaker with a message for emergency nurses focused on improving mental health and well-being, while creating supportive communities that bring out the best in everyone.

On Wednesday, ENA revealed Richards and his “The Courage to go Together” presentation as the headliner to Emergency Nursing 2023’s opening session on Sept. 21 at the San Diego Convention Center. The founder and CEO of Go Together Global, Richards is a best-selling author, workplace civility expert, sought-after speaker and a self-professed “kindness extremist.”

Recognizing the uniquely difficult times health care professionals have experienced in recent years, Richards promises to share strategies audience members can use to make a significant positive difference in their personal and professional lives, while encouraging those in attendance to lean into kindness to create a psychologically safe work culture.

“Shola’s passion for kindness, his authentic storytelling and commitment to ending workplace bullying and incivility make for an inspiring message that everyone at Emergency Nursing 2023 will want to hear,” said ENA President Terry Foster, MSN, RN, CEN, CPEN, CCRN, TCRN, FAEN.
