Texas Women’s Foundation presents 34th Annual Luncheon
Texas Women’s Foundation will feature Elaine Welteroth as the keynote speaker for its 34th Annual Luncheon. Welteroth is an award-winning journalist, New York Times bestselling author, judge on the new Project Runway, and the former editor-in-chief of Teen Vogue.
Throughout her magazine career, Welteroth broke new ground as the youngest person and the second African-American to be editor-in-chief 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. 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.
Welteroth just released a book, More Than Enough: Claiming Space for Who You Are (No Matter What They Say), which she describes as part-manifesto, part-memoir, exploring topics such as race, relationships, identity and success. More Than Enough became a New York Times bestseller in its first week of release. A San Francisco Bay Area native, Welteroth resides in Brooklyn with her fiancé and is a proud volunteer at the Lower East Girls Club in New York City.
Community leaders Janiece Evans-Page and Virginia Rose-Harris are co-chairs of the luncheon. Evans-Page is vice president of global philanthropy and sustainability of the Fossil Group and leads efforts to make the biggest impact possible through global giving and sustainability. Rose-Harris, recognized by the National Diversity Council as one of Texas’ Most Powerful and Influential Women, is vice president and officer of Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital-Dallas.
