New Power Media and the Next Generation of Leaders with Ann Shoket, Author, Speaker and Former Editor-In-Chief, 'Seventeen'

It is the mission of Ann Shoket—author, speaker, and former editor-in-chief of the legendary 'Seventeen'—to help women and the next generation of leaders see their potential and step into their power at work, in relationships, and in their lives. Ann joins us for an intimate conversation about her new media and events platform New Power Media and its goal of creating communities of men and women who are devoted to helping each other achieve and succeed. We'll also chat about Ann's amazing book 'The Big Life' and its mission to 'embrace the mess, work your side hustle, find a monumental relationship, and become the badass babe you were meant to be.' This conversation will be moderated by PowerToFly's Sienna Brown, Senior Manager Global DEI Strategy. This conversation is co-presented by TheLi.st.

Meet The Speakers

Ann Shoket
Author, Speaker, Founder of New Power Media & Former editor-in-chief “Seventeen”

I was editor-in-chief of legendary young women’s brand Seventeen for the better part of a decade—an entire generation grew up and into their power with me. I am the author of The Big Life, a guide for ambitious young women who are changing what it means to be powerful and successful in the world—for everyone. Its message of building a life on your own terms has connected to women of all ages and stages. Most recently, I built a high-profile media and events platform, New Power Media, creating communities of men and women who are devoted to helping each other achieve and succeed. But what drives me is leading provocative conversations—over dinner or on stages across the country—about the ways in which women and the next generation are redefining power and success. My goal is to inspire audiences to embrace change and build bridges between generations. I’ve been honored to be a speaker for major conferences and corporations including SXSW, TEDx, Microsoft and Facebook. I have loved being a consultant and a regular contributor for Good Morning America. (And I had a blast as a guest judge for four seasons on America’s Next Top Model)!
