When it comes to women’s aversion to talking about ourselves, Amanda Hirsch has a front row seat, coaching women in their 20s and in their 70s, across industries such as media, technology, the arts, nonprofits, and beyond. In this talk, Amanda will share why she believes women need to learn to reframe self-promotion as a form of personal storytelling, and why telling our stories — and having an online presence through which to amplify those stories — is key to growing our power.
Amanda Hirsch is on a mission to fill the world with women's stories. Her company, Mighty Forces, helps women and women's organizations clarify and amplify their stories; clients include Melinda Gates' Pivotal Ventures and The Malala Fund, as well as dozens of individual women leaders across industries and age brackets, from Sundance board chair Pat Mitchell (in her 70s) to women in their 20s who are just starting out. Previously Amanda was a content strategy consultant to nonprofit organizations like the George Lucas Educational Foundation, TED and NPR. Before that, she served as editorial director of PBS.org. Amanda is also an author, essayist, blogger and aspiring TV writer determined to fill popular culture with authentic stories about strong women. Her original TV pilot script, "Yes, Andrea," was selected as a finalist in the 2020 Sundance Episodic Lab. Learn more at amandahirsch.com.
