Hire18 Speaker Preview: Lisa Wang

Gold-medal-winning hall-of-fame gymnast, Yale graduate, startup CEO, Forbes columnist, and HS18 speaker. What had you done by the time you turned 30?

If you’ve been feeling like a bit of an underachiever lately, probably better you don’t read much about Lisa Wang. Because if, like many humans, you’re susceptible to envy which quickly gives way to self-loathing, you’re at risk of taking Lisa as an enabler for your own depression.

At age 29, she’s been inducted into the US Gymnastics Hall of Fame for her four National-level gold medals, graduated from Yale, and cast off the yoke of Wall Street hedge-fund management to co-found Sheworx, a startup to foster female entrepreneurs into tangible funding forums – connecting over 20,000 people so far. As a 30-Under-30 listee, you can now read her column in Forbes, and AND she’s been dubbed by as one of the top 20 female entrepreneurs to watch in 2018.

In March, SmartRecruiters will welcome Lisa to our Hiring Success 2018 conference in San Francisco, where she will speak of gender parity in a post-Weinstein world, among other relevant topics for companies eager to be part of the shift towards gender equality.

Stay tuned for our interview with Lisa coming soon. Until then, check out what will be happening at Hiring Success 18 from March 12-14. And register here.
