Topic: Changing The Ratio

RACHEL SKLAR is a writer and social entrepreneur based in New York. She is the co-founder of Change The Ratio, which increases visibility and opportunity for women in tech & new media, and TheLi.st, launching soon with that same mission (supported by the Knight Foundation). A former lawyer who writes about media, politics, culture & technology, she was a founding editor at Mediaite and the Huffington Post. She has written things on trees (e.g. New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Financial Times, National Post, Glamour, Elle) and online (e.g. The Daily Beast, Mother Jones, Politico, Mashable) and she speaks widely at conferences, events and on TV. She is also the co-host of “The Salon” on The Jewish Channel (check local listings!). Occasionally, she sings. 

 

Rachel is a TechStars mentor and an advisor to several startups, including Vox Media, The Daily Muse, Lover.ly, Votizen &TeachAIDS.org, and is a proud Board member at She’s The First. She is also a proud member of the Reboot, TED & Summit communities and of the Lean In Foundation launch team. Rachel’s other initiatives include founding Charitini, a social enterprise to facilitate group giving around events, and CTRComedy - an all-women comedy initiative which quadrupled the number of women performing comedy at SXSW in 2011 and 2012. 

 

Rachel was named to the Silicon Alley 100 in 2009, 2010 and 2011, FastCompany’s “League of Extraordinary Women,” Forbes’ “Women Changing The World,” JWA’s “Making Trouble, Making History” award and has earned numerous honors and awards for her writing and her activism.
