Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort.

Louis-Dreyfus, who has earned worldwide recognition for her roles in the

hit series “Seinfeld” and “Veep,” joins New York Times

best-selling author and Quiet Revolution co-founder Susan

Cain and top-ranked Wharton School professor and New York Times

bestselling author Adam

Grant as keynote speakers. The mission of the WorkHuman movement is

to galvanize leaders and organizations worldwide to harness the

transformative power of people for the next generation of HR. The annual

event has grown exponentially in size since the inaugural event in 2015,

and has featured some of the world’s most influential thought leaders

and visionaries, including Arianna Huffington, renowned business thinker

Gary Hamel, actor Michael J. Fox, and bestselling author Shawn Achor.

Julia Louis-Dreyfus earned worldwide acclaim and recognition for her

portrayal of Elaine Benes in the hit NBC series "Seinfeld," as Christine

Campbell in the CBS hit comedy "The New Adventures of Old Christine" and

most recently as Vice President Selina Meyer in the HBO series "Veep."

Between all shows combined, she has received eight Emmy awards with

twenty-two nominations, a Golden Globe award with eight nominations,

seven Screen Actors Guild awards with sixteen nominations, two

Television Critics Association awards with three nominations, five

American Comedy Awards with ten nominations, and has received the

Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy.

Louis-Dreyfus has previously received critical acclaim for her starring

role in Fox Searchlight's "Enough Said", opposite the late James

Gandolfini, Catherine Keener and Toni Collette. This role snagged Julia

a Golden Globe nomination - making her one of the elite few who have had

the honor to be concurrently nominated for both a film and television

role. Her other television credits include multiple appearances on HBO's

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" which was co-created by Larry David of

"Seinfeld," a recurring role on Matt Groening's “The Simpsons” on FOX, a

recurring role in 2003 on Fox's critically acclaimed "Arrested

Development," NBC's 2002 real-time sitcom "Watching Ellie," and the TNT

animated film "Animal Farm" to which she lent her voice alongside Ian

Holm, Kelsey Grammer and Patrick Stewart. Louis-Dreyfus first made her

mark on television during a three-year stint (1982-1985) on "Saturday

Night Live" opposite the likes of Billy Crystal, Christopher Guest and

Eddie Murphy. She subsequently hosted the show twice, becoming the first

female former cast member to return as host.

Louis-Dreyfus is also a steadfast advocate for the environment, serving

on the leadership council for the Natural Resource Defense Council and

on the boards of Heal the Bay and Heal the Ocean. She studied theater at

Northwestern University, where she performed as a member of The

Practical Theater Company and Chicago’s famed Second-City comedy troupe.

At WorkHuman 2017, Louis-Dreyfus will draw from her vast body of work to

emphasize the importance of communication, inclusion and culture in an

age of the rapidly-evolving workplace. With a perspective that extends

beyond the conventional office space, she’ll apply lessons learned from

a successful career in acting and comedy to the goals of creating a

happier, more productive workspace.

“As one of the great comedic actresses of our time, Julia understands

how to embody unique, relatable and, most importantly, human

traits that truly bring her characters to life,” said Eric Mosley, CEO

of Globoforce. “Her work reminds us of the importance of authenticity

and levity – characteristics that make us undeniably human. She is an

inspiring addition to WorkHuman, and we are thrilled to share the stage

with her in 2017.”
