I think the world will be a better place when there are no longer stories of women being the first, and I think it’s going to happen with this next generation.Susan Goldberg
Susan Goldberg, Editor In Chief of National Geographic and Editorial Director of National Geographic Partners, shared the story behind her title with Women To Watch Media® on June 7, 2020.
As Editorial Director, Susan leads all journalism across platforms, including digital journalism, magazines, podcasts, maps and Instagram. She was named Editorial Director in October 2015 and Editor in Chief of National Geographic Magazine in April 2014. She is the 10th editor, and first female editor, of the magazine since it was first published in October 1888.
Susan’s love of journalism began early in eighth grade when she wrote a paper on the “Opportunities in Journalism.” Her father was a professor and her mother was a Librarian…perhaps that’s where her love of words and stories come from. What impressed me the most is Susan’s continued enthusiasm for a career she has been in for most of her life. She still sees new things to come!
