Sophie Beren is a unifier from Wichita, Kansas. She is the Founder and CEO of The Conversationalist, a non-partisan educational platform empowering Gen Z to break out of their echo chambers, have difficult conversations, and unify the world. Her community of over 100,000 young people is committed to coming together, across differences, through “POVz,” the first-ever Gen Z Talk Show, and through their digital network located on the Geneva app. Sophie was recently recognized as a Uniter in America by The White House and was named Forbes 30 Under 30 on the 2023 Education List.

Sophie’s work, featured on Good Morning America, The Washington Post, and even on a billboard in Times Square, has proven to be the antidote to the polarization we see in our country today. Beren will continue to unify the next generation, one conversation at a time.
