Event Description:
Sheryl WuDunn, the first Asian-American reporter to win a Pulitzer Prize, is a best-selling author, business executive, and lecturer. She speaks around the world on economic, political, and social topics related to women in the developing world.

WuDunn, along with her husband, New York Times columnist Nick Kristof, is co-author of New York Times Best-Seller, Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide. Half the Sky is a passionate call to arms against the oppression of women and girls in the developing world. It has been featured on The Oprah Winfrey Show, The Colbert Report, and many other network television shows. WuDunn was honored for Half the Sky in 2010 with the Beacon Award from the White House Project, a nonpartisan organization that seeks to advance women's leadership in all communities and sectors. And she is a judge for the U.S. Department "Secretary's Innovation Award for Women's and Girls' Empowerment." Together, WuDunn and Kristof won a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of China.

WuDunn previously worked at the New York Times as both an executive and journalist, as well as in finance at Goldman Sachs. Currently, she is a senior managing director at Mid-Market Securities, an investment banking boutique serving growth companies in the middle market, including companies founded and run by women.

WuDunn graduated from Cornell University, and earned master's degrees from Harvard Business School and Princeton University.
