Exceptional Women in Publishing announces that Susan Goldberg, editor in chief of National Geographic magazine is the seventeenth recipient of the Exceptional Woman In Publishing Award. The award recognizes a leading woman who has achieved prominence in her career and made extraordinary contributions to publishing. The 2015 Exceptional Woman in Publishing Award will be presented to Ms. Goldberg at the award celebration during the 2015 Women's Leadership Conference in Berkeley, CA on March 26, 2015.
"Susan is an incredibly talented journalist and she has a strong interest in assisting other women as they advance in their careers," says EWIP president, Yumi Wilson. "We at EWIP feel very honored that Susan will join us and share her insight at our 2015 spring conference."
"Having more women achieve success in newsrooms -- and doing what I can to help make that happen -- has been one of my goals for many years," says Ms. Goldberg. "I'm delighted that EWIP is also working to make this goal a reality. I'm honored to be included with this wonderful group of women."
In April 2014, Ms. Goldberg was appointed editor in chief of National Geographic, the eighth largest magazine in the U.S. Under her leadership, National Geographic is working to make the venerable brand a must-read, creating a daily destination for readers online on such topics as the environment, climate change, scientific breakthroughs, and species preservation. "Readers shouldn't have to wait a month to have a National Geographic experience," she said. "They can come to us for an adventure every day."
