It’s just a few words used to describe ChairmanMe co-founder and CEO Sarah Lacy. Sarah was a 20-year investigative journalist, triple-time best selling author, and entrepreneur who has helped build two successful media companies, before starting ChairmanMe in 2018.
She’s known for her outspoken, take-bro-prisoners approach to righting the wrongs of Silicon Valley, and beyond. She’s also known for her heart. A true champion of women and other underrepresented groups, Sarah has hosted monthly dinners in her home for female founders, mentored dozens of up and coming writers, and is a tireless activist fighting for the rights of transgender youth in America.

A regular guest on international television and the keynote circuit, Sarah has bucked the 98% odds and raised millions in venture capital from some of the largest investors in the world. (Despite burning bridges with so many of them through her fearless reporting.)
She lives in San Francisco and Palm Springs and (sometimes) her 1983 turquoise Airstream with her two incredible kids, three badass cats, and one super smart red poodle.
She will spend the rest of her career trying to pay her luck and privilege forward to help make the world and the workplace more equal for everyone.
