34th Annual Luncheon Speaker

Elaine Welteroth

Award-winning journalist
New York Times Bestselling author
Judge on the new Project Runway
Former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue

Throughout her magazine career, Welteroth broke new ground as the youngest person and the second African-American to be editor-in-chief in Condé Nast’s 107-year history.  Under her leadership, Teen Vogue notably increased coverage of news and politics, encouraging readers to become civically engaged. She’s now a leading expert, advocate and voice for the next generation of change-makers. She has written for the hit show Grown-ish and has appeared on-camera for a range of media outlets including ABC News and Netflix. Welteroth just released a book, More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say), which she describes as part-manifesto, part-memoir, exploring topics such as race, relationships, identity and success. More Than Enough became a New York Times bestseller in its first week of release. A San Francisco Bay Area native, Welteroth resides in Brooklyn with her fiancé and is a proud volunteer at the Lower East Girls Club in New York City.
