12th Annual Surrey Women in Business Awards

April 30, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Event Description:

12th Annual Surrey Women in Business Awards. This year’s keynote is Yaël Eisenstat!


Over the last two decades, Yaël Eisenstat has been a CIA Officer, a US Diplomat, and a special advisor to then-Vice President Biden. Noticing that more and more Americans were having a hard time finding common ground, she switched her focus from counter-extremism overseas to the dangers back at home starting with Silicon Valley. Eisenstat’s national security expertise landed her at Facebook, working inside the company playing a major role in one of the biggest threats to our democracy. Today, Eisenstat helps us navigate the choppy intersection of ethics, technology, society, and politics to create a better future.

Once named one of Forbes 40 Women to Watch Over 40, Eisenstat founded and runs Kilele Global: a consulting firm working with mission-driven organizations to tackle our most complex global challenges. She is also a Global Policy Adviser at the Center for Humane Technology and a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. Eisenstat regularly provides context and analysis on national security, political, and foreign affairs in the media. She has been published in The New York TimesThe Washington PostTIME, and WIRED, and has appeared on CNN, BBC World NewsCBS News, and C-SPAN. Eisenstat earned an M.A. in International Affairs from the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies.
