MEET THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER


Elaine Welteroth

 

Elaine Welteroth is an award-winning journalist, author and the former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue. Throughout her magazine career Elaine broke new ground as the youngest person and the second African American to hold this title 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, specifically during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. 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.
