Sara Hirsh Bordo is the CEO and Founder of Women Rising. Sara previously held positions in media and entertainment including Executive Director of Interactive Marketing at Paramount Pictures, VP of Digital Marketing at MGM Studios, and CEO and Co-Founder of NowLive which was acquired by Live Media Group in 2013.
During her experience in entertainment, she was told by her female boss, that she “belonged more in an apron than in an office.” Recognizing that women have to champion each other rather than allow each other to feel threatened by each other, Sara founded Women Rising, which is dedicated to empowering women and girls through content and experiences.
Sara’s life has been one of exploration and storytelling for as long as she can remember. As a young girl growing up in a “traditional” family in Austin, TX, she innately knew that her life would take a different path than those of the other women in her family. Listen to why she has dedicated her life to the empowerment of girls and women and why she believes that statistics and percentages are not nearly as important as discovering what it is you were meant to do here on earth.
