Randi Zuckerberg, the best-selling author and founder and CEO of Zuckerberg Media, will be Chattanooga Women’s Leadership Institute’s (CWLI) keynote speaker at the 12th annual IMPACT Leadership Dinner on Feb. 23rd.

CWLI celebrates women in leadership roles and works to increase the influence of women in the Chattanooga community.

As an early employee at Facebook, which was co-founded by her brother Mark Zuckerberg, Ms. Zuckerberg led major marketing campaigns and was instrumental in the creation of Facebook Live, the live-streaming initiative now used by over one billion people around the globe. Additionally, Zuckerberg was nominated for an Emmy in 2011 for her innovative coverage of the midterm elections, which combined television and social media.

After leaving Facebook, Ms. Zuckerberg launched Zuckerberg Media in order to create media content that puts intelligent, tech-savvy, entrepreneurial women and girls at the forefront. Zuckerberg has published two books, including New York Times bestseller “Dot Complicated” and “Dot.” – a children’s book which recently debuted as a television show on NBC’s children’s network Sprout. Randi also hosts a weekly radio show “Dot Complicated” on SiriusXM Business Radio. Her full biography can be found here.

“Her entrepreneurial mindset and award-winning accomplishments made Randi Zuckerberg a clear choice for this year’s IMPACT Leadership Dinner keynote speaker,” said CWLI Event Chair Jennifer Nicely. “As a wife and mother of two young sons, Ms. Zuckerberg is a leading example of how to balance personal and professional success, which many of our members can relate to.”

This year’s IMPACT Leadership Dinner is set for Thursday, Feb. 23 from 5:30 – 8:30 p.m. at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Tables and individual tickets are currently available for purchase online. For more information about the event, including sponsorship opportunities, visit or call 423.394.8173.
