The New York Times Company is partnering with Women of The World, the event company run by Tina Brown. As part of the multi-year deal, the Times will invest in Women in The World and launch a new digital platform for the company, which will be tied to NYTimes.com.
“In a few short years, Tina has made Women in the World one of the most influential and successful live event series focused on women and girls around the world,” said Mark Thompson, the Times’ CEO, in a statement. “Tina is renowned for her outstanding editorial vision, and we’re delighted with the prospect of collaborating with her and her team on this exciting and important project.”
Brown, Women in The World’s CEO and founder, will remain in that role. The event series is executive produced by Kyle Gibson.
The next Women in the World summit will be April 22–24 at the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center. It will be produced in association with Times.
