In an exclusive interview, UBS’s Women’s Segment team spoke with renowned editor and founder of Women in the World, Tina Brown, ahead of the 2019 Women in the World Summit in New York, of which UBS is a key sponsor. Brown’s passion for the written word, awareness and unique perspective on what makes the planet turn and keep turning led her in 2010 to found Women in the World, a gathering borne of the experience and deep connections she cultivated in her decades-long career.
The summit brings together leaders, both known and soon-to-be-discovered ones, who share stories and solutions to build better lives for girls and women. Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Christine Lagarde and Meryl Streep are just some of the marquee names at past summits. Speakers this year include Oprah Winfrey, Stacey Abrams, Anna Wintour, Brie Larson, Cindy McCain and many others.
Ahead of the summit, UBS sat down with Brown to discuss family, finances and how women can change the dialogue about money, so that it’s no longer considered “one of the last taboos.
