Livestream link to come.

With a talent for reinventing and leading organizations through extreme disruption, Tina Brown rescued dwindling sales as the editor-in-chief at Vanity Fair and remixed The New Yorker. She pioneered online journalism as the editor-in-chief and founder of The Daily Beast, and now she's taking on live-journalism as the founder and CEO of the global Women in the World Summit.

As a leader in one of the most disrupted industries of our time, Tina captivates audiences with empowering conversations about overcoming challenges facing female leaders; radical reinvention in the face of shifting tastes, technologies, and market conditions; improving the lives of women and girls; and what it takes to get to — and stay at — the top of your industry.

Register for the event and read Oregon Quarterly's Q&A with Tina Brown.

About the Speaker

Formerly the editor of Vanity Fair and the New Yorker, Tina Brown is now CEO of Tina Brown Live Media. She was also the visionary force behind Women in the World, a global platform dedicated to building a better life for women and girls. In this role, she brought together the world’s most remarkable and powerful women for annual summits in New York City, London, Toronto, New Delhi, and Dubai. By convening inspirational activists, political change-makers, and extraordinary leaders, Women in the World drew luminaries such as Hillary Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Stacey Abrams, Anna Wintour, and Christine Lagarde and became a platform for advocacy, awareness, and connection.

Brown also hosted the podcast TBD with Tina Brown, where she talked with entertaining candor to writers, actors, politicians, journalists, activists, thought leaders, and news makers of tomorrow's social debates. Brown's storytelling, the early years of her celebrated career, and the roaring ‘80s are showcased in her latest book, The Vanity Fair Diaries: 1983–1992.
