Founder: Dr. Shawne Duperon

Dr. Shawne Duperon never imagined when she produced a 5-minute video on forgiveness it would go viral, attract the attention of worldwide media coverage, inspire global leaders such as Archbishop Desmond Tutu, or even garner the honor of a Nobel Peace Prize nomination.

And that’s exactly what happened.

Dr. Shawne’s response to the overwhelming outpour of support and requests for tools and resources to reduce suffering and increase empowerment, initiated the creation of the Project Forgive Foundation, a 501c3 organization.

This story of forgiveness was hitting at the core of humanity in a way that’s never been done before and founder Dr. Shawne, responded.

With her PhD in communication and social media reach topping
120 million per month, this Six-Time EMMY® winner is considered to be one of the most innovative speakers and consultants on disruptive and healing communication.

From London, to Athens, to Munich, to across North America, Dr. Shawne educates corporations, universities, governments and entrepreneurs, on how to effectively communicate resulting in increased engagement, retention, agility and strategic disruption in the workplace.

Her progressive and courageous facilitations of conversations on forgiveness in leadership, shift unconscious bias and sexual harassment in the workplace, amplifying inclusion and respect. Dr. Shawne speaks on these topics in her popular Facebook Live broadcasts.

Dr. Shawne consistently shares her own journey of forgiveness after being molested as a child. She models a courageous ability to forgive the unforgivable, and shares that ability by developing curriculum through evidence-based research and innovative new media tools to advance forgiveness.
