Posted By Administrator, Tuesday, October 16, 2018

Our Make Your Mark Awards celebrating our 25th anniversary is next month and we are incredibly excited to announce our Keynote Speaker, Tiffany Shlain.

Honored by Newsweek as one of the “Women Shaping the 21st Century,” Tiffany Shlain is an Emmy-nominated filmmaker, author, founder of The Webby Awards, and co-founder of two global initiatives, Character Day and 50/50 Day--unified days of film and discussion about important issues shaping our lives that unite over 100,000 live events.  Character Day explores the science of character and 50/50 Day focuses on gender equity. Selected by the Albert Einstein Foundation as a contributor to Genius: 100 Visions of the Future, Tiffany's films and work have received over 80 awards and distinctions including premieres at The Sundance Film Festival and being selected by The US State Department to use her films to represent America around the world and have received over 50 million views. She serves on the Leadership Board of The Center on Media and Child Health at Harvard's Boston Children's Hospital and she is a Henry Crown Fellow of The Aspen Institute. She is currently writing a book about her family’s decade long ritual of turning off screens one day each week for what they call their Technology Shabbats. The book will be published by Simon & Schuster in 2019. Learn more about Tiffany at www.tiffanyshlain.com and follow her @tiffanyshlain!
