Who is Moira Forbes and why should you tune in?

In this webinar, you'll get to hear from the experience of a woman making a difference in the publishing industry. Her contributions have been an inspiration to women everywhere, and she has established her media channel as a leading source for information on women in the workplace.

Moira Forbes is the President and Publisher of ForbesWoman, a multi-media platform dedicated to successful women in business and leadership. Launched by Forbes media in 2008, ForbesWoman examines the unique experiences of professionally successful women, affirms their ambitions and achievements, and sets the agenda for purposeful discourse on the topics that matter most to them. Moira is also the host of Success with Moira Forbes, a video series on the Forbes Video Network featuring candid, one-on-one interviews with today's top women leaders.

Moira joined Forbes Media in 2001 in its London office, overseeing research and marketing for Forbes' European edition, in addition to developing business opportunities on behalf of all the company divisions. After moving to the New York office, she was named associate publisher of Forbes' dedicated lifestyle magazine, ForbesLife, in 2004. In 2010, Moira founded the Forbes Executive Women's Board, which aims to advance some of the most relevant issues for women in business and leadership today. She serves on the board of Key4Women and is a member of several organizations.
