MAKERS exists to accelerate the women’s movement through stories of real-life experiences that ignite passion and action. With the largest video collection of women's profiles ever assembled, live and virtual events, Emmy-nominated documentaries, and award-winning digital content, MAKERS has been uniting women in every industry, at every level, around the issues that matter most, one story at a time. From the women you’ve heard of, to those you haven’t yet but should, to the allies who are actively supporting the fight for equality, current MAKERS include: media mogul Oprah Winfrey; U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg ; feminist and writer Gloria Steinem; writer and producer Shonda Rhimes; athlete and first woman to run in the Boston Marathon Kathrine Switzer; singer and activist John Legend; activist Tarana Burke, and many more.
Now more than ever, we believe nothing is more essential than equity, diversity, and inclusion. We are using our platforms to create access to important stories from diverse voices – incredible people who impact change and inspire us to collective action.
Every year, MAKERS gathers 600+ innovative leaders and executives for The MAKERS Conference, a three-day experience that sets the agenda for advancing women in the workplace and in the world. Produced like a live documentary, sessions explore a wide range of topics from unconscious bias to policy change, sports to workplace harassment, education to entertainment and beyond. Discussions prioritize actively solving problems, rather than simply talking about them. Past participants include Angela Glover Blackwell, Katie Hill, Cynt Marshall, Kimberle Crenshaw, John Legend, Jada Pinkett-Smith and Gloria Steinem.
