The Alliance for Women in Media has secured Elizabeth Smart, author, founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, and children’s advocate, as keynote speaker at the Gracies Leadership Awards on Thursday, Nov. 21, at The Plaza Hotel, New York City. The annual event recognizes and celebrates the significant impact women have made in the media industry.
“The Alliance for Women in Media has a strong history of supporting and celebrating women in media. I am honored to be a part of an event that aims to inspire a new generation of trailblazers,” said Smart, who is a past Gracie winner.
Smart is best known for her abduction in 2002 and has since become the founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation and an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs, and national legislation. She is also the author of the books My Story, You’re Not Alone: The Journey From Abduction to Empowerment, and Where There’s Hope.
