Randi Zuckerberg talked about her personal journey through Silicon Valley, including her experience during the early days of Facebook, and her adventures creating her own new media company, Zuckerberg Media, at an ATLAS Speaker Series event.
Zuckerberg, who is the sister of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, also talked about how technology shaped her career and how it is influencing every aspect of our lives today, including how people communicate with each other and the directions their careers take.
The first 100 attendees received a free copy of her book “Dot Complicated: Untangling our Wired Lives.”
Zuckerberg, who also is editor-in-chief of Dot Complicated, created and ran Facebook’s early marketing programs, led the company’s U.S. election and international politics strategy and created Facebook’s live streaming video capability during the 2008 presidential Inauguration.
She was nominated for an Emmy in 2011 for her innovative coverage of the 2010 mid-term elections that integrated online and TV coverage in unique formats. Since starting Zuckerberg Media, she has produced shows and digital experiences for BeachMint, the Clinton Global Initiative, Cirque du Soleil, Bravo and Conde Nast.
This talk was presented in cooperation with the Air Force Reserve.
