Claudia Chan is a women's leadership and lifestyle expert dedicated to celebrating today's female role models through her 200+ remarkable women interview series on, and S.H.E. Summit, the annual global women's week convening women dreamers with extraordinary female thought leaders.

Immersed in the women's space, from all-women's schools to her 9-year journey as president of girlfriend events company Shecky's, Claudia noticed the dire lack of mainstream programming positively portraying women leaders and felt that this directly affected how women and girls recognize their own potential. In 2012, she launched SHE Globl Media Inc., a purposeful women's platform that empowers women to live their most optimal personal and professional lives so they can change the world, through ongoing media and educational initiatives like and S.H.E. Summit. By sharing practical advice of hundreds of strong female role models like model activist Christy Turlington Burns, philanthropist Jennifer Buffett, fashion designer Tory Burch, humanitarian Zainab Salbi to corporate leaders like Susan Sobbott, S.H.E. Globl Media initiatives give women access to stories, strategies and solutions that are typically inaccessible with a belief that if women lead their optimal lives, they will change the world.

Referred to as “the aspirational Facebook for women” by, “SHE Who Must Be Obeyed” by the The Daily Beast, “Intrepid Woman” by The Glass Hammer, “a motivational media woman in charge” by Cosmopolitan Magazine--Claudia has been featured in countless media outlets including the Aol/PBS initiative “Makers: Women Who Make America.” She also speaks on women’s leadership at corporations, universities, conferences and is looking forward to her first TEDx talk in Fall 2013.
