Our guest is Orit Kopel, a woman who has raised her voice to help advance women in leadership positions and to encourage women to “amplify their unique voices in the public sphere.” She was cofounder and VP for Business Development for WikiTribune, an innovative Wiki-style news platform that brings together citizen volunteers and hired professional journalists to create a collaborative news space.

Orit is CEO of the Jimmy Wales Foundation for Freedom of Expression, which advocates for bloggers and social-media users who are persecuted for speaking out against repressive regimes around the world. She represented the Foundation in the role of special adviser to Google’s Expert Advisory Council on the “Right to Be Forgotten.” Most recently, Orit founded Glass Voices, a platform to help empower women to pursue leadership roles and amplify their voices in public and professional settings.
