Why you need to know Tina Brown, CEO of Women In The World
There’s a lot to say about Tina Brown’s long career as a journalist. Working for years as editor-in-chief of Tatler, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker, and Talk, her experience and business acumen is astounding. She created the Women In The World Annual Summit, the first of which was held in 2010.
It is a platform for global women on the front lines — activists, artists, CEOs, peacemakers, entrepreneurs, and firebrand dissidents who have saved or enriched lives and shattered glass ceilings in every sector. It has become the premier showcase for women of impact — and for the men who champion them — by presenting vivid journalistic narratives, stirring videos, and provocative discussions.
“I want to see diversity across the board — in political opinion, gender, race, age”. — Tina Brown
In a Forbes interview Brown said she felt Women In The World was the beginning of a movement. She believes that now women have reached a tipping point where they are finally saying no to inequality and are fighting for rights like equal pay.
Brown’s achievements do not stop there. In 2007 she was named a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for her services to journalism by Queen Elizabeth. She is also the author of the 2007 best-selling biography of the Princess of Wales, The Diana Chronicles and The Vanity Fair Diaries, a story about her move to America and work as Chief Editor of Vanity Fair.
