Featured Speaker: Jodi Kantor
Jodi Kantor is a prize-winning investigative reporter and bestselling author whose work has revealed hidden truths about power, gender, technology, politics and culture.
In October of 2017, she and Megan Twohey broke the story of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of sexual abuse allegations. Their work helped ignite the #MeToo movement, shift attitudes, and spur new laws, policies and standards of accountability around the globe. Together with a team of colleagues who exposed harassment across industries, they were awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, journalism’s highest award.
The article she wrote about Harvard Business School’s attempt to change its climate for women provoked a national conversation about women in business schools. Ms. Kantor’s report on working mothers and breastfeeding inspired two readers to create the first free-standing lactation suites for nursing mothers, now available in hundreds of airports and stadiums.
For their work on Mr. Weinstein, Ms. Kantor and Ms. Twohey also received a George Polk Award, the McGill Medal for Journalistic Courage from the University of Georgia, and honors from the Los Angeles Press Club and the Canadian Journalism Foundation. Along with other members of the New York Times sexual harassment reporting team, they were awarded the IRE Medal, from Investigative Reporters and Editors, Inc., the Batten Medal from the American Society of Newspaper Editors, a Scripps Howard Award for Impact, a special citation from the Goldsmith Awards of Harvard University’s Shorenstein Center and the Matrix Inaugural Incite Award from New York Women in Communications.
Ms. Kantor, a contributor to CBS This Morning, lives in Brooklyn with her husband, Ron Lieber, and their two daughters.
