About Claudia Chan, Women's Leadership and Lifestyle Expert
Claudia Chan is a women's leadership and lifestyle expert who celebrates today's female role models through her 200+ remarkable women interview series on ClaudiaChan.com, and S.H.E. Summit Conference, the annual global women's leadership and lifestyle event which she founded in June 2012.
Immersed in the women's space, from all-women's schools to her 9-year journey as president of girlfriend media company Shecky's, Claudia noticed the dire lack of mainstream programming positively portraying women leaders and felt that this directly affected how women and girls recognize their own potential. In 2012, she launched SHE Globl Media Inc., a purposeful women's platform that empowers women to live their most optimal personal and professional lives so they can change the world, through ongoing media and educational initiatives. By sharing practical advice of hundreds of strong female role models like model activist Christy Turlington Burns, philanthropist Jennifer Buffett, fashion designer Tory Burch, humanitarian Zainab Salbi to corporate leaders like Susan Sobbott. S.H.E. Globl Media initiatives give women access to stories, strategies and solutions that are typically inaccessible with a belief that if women live their potential, they will change the world.
Claudia's recent TEDxMiddlebury Talk on the #SHERevolution shares her belief that the world needs women to co-lead today more than ever, and that women's empowerment requires full participation from women, men, corporations, media and advertisers to empower the leadership and lifestyle of women.
