Claudia ChanFounder of S.H.E. Global Media
Gosh where do I start? I have been immersed in the community of women my whole life (from all-girl schools…to a having fearless entrepreneurial mom…to co-running a girlfriend entertainment company called Shecky’s for 9 years). But in 2010 at age 35, when I opened my eyes to the state of women, that’s when I stepped into a NEW CONSCIOUSNESS OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A WOMAN IN TODAY’S WORLD. I personalized these issues and realized my responsibility to leverage my life and God-given gifts to improve this reality and convene other women to do so too. Channeling my Smith College days, the feminist in me woke back up and I started consuming every event, nonprofit, article and book I could find centered around the words “women’s empowerment, leadership, power, and potential.” I met an army of incredible women starting, innovating, empowering, leading, disrupting and often juggling multiple jobs while driving positive change for a cause. It hit me, these female role models (executives, entrepreneurs, social change makers, mothers, innovators) were vastly underrepresented in mainstream TV shows, magazines and websites that today’s women and young girls consume. Media is a persuasive form of education and creator of consciousness, and since most programming covets the beautiful, thin and young — I am convinced it directly affects how our female generation perceives it’s personal self worth and potential. So I decided to ditch security and devote all my being to creating S.H.E. Globl Media to be a purposeful women’s media and education company…that you are reading and experiencing right now!!! It’s name stands for “she helps empower the globe” with the belief that if I feed women with enough content, conferences and curriculum…role models, tools for growth, advice and mentorship…they will become more successful at integrating their personal and professional lives, and therefore CHANGE THE WORLD! Watch my TEDx Talk on the #SHERevolution to understand me better, hear my perspective of the women’s revolution happening now, why I need your support and how we can work together.
