Founder of Eileen Fisher, Inc.

Eileen Fisher

Eileen is the founder and co-CEO of Eileen Fisher, Inc., the design company known for creating simple, timeless garments, where she also serves as the chairwoman. Eileen ventured into clothing design in 1984. Her original concept—pieces that work together to help women get dressed easily—still defines the company’s collections, which are sold at 66 Eileen Fisher stores, over 300 department and specialty stores across the US, UK, and Canada, as well as two Renew stores as part of the company’s innovative recycling program.

In 2009, Eileen Fisher started a take-back program—part of a circular system designed to preserve the value of the brand’s clothes at every stage, in any condition. The company has taken back over 1.3 million garments to date, designating pieces that are beyond repair as raw material for Waste No More, an experimental design studio based in Irvington, NY. The studio transforms damaged clothes into one-of-a-kind artworks, pillows, wall hangings, and accessories using a custom felting technique that requires no water or dyes.

In 2016, the company became one of the largest women’s fashion companies to be certified a B Corporation, voluntarily meeting high criteria for social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. In addition, the company is the largest B Corp in the state of New York.

Eileen is passionate about business as a movement. In spring 2015, the company announced VISION2020, a bold five-year plan that addresses sustainability and human rights. In keeping with Eileen’s belief in collaboration, VISION2020 calls for partnering with other brands to shift the fashion industry.

In 2019, Eileen received the Positive Change Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Eileen was also honored as Designer of the Year by the American Apparel & Footwear Association. In 2017, Parsons School of Design honored Eileen at their annual gala for her work in sustainability. Eileen was selected to join the steering committee for New York State’s Council on Women and Girls. Launched by Governor Andrew Cuomo, this committee was formed to ensure that government policies and programs protect women’s rights and equality advancement in the state.

Acclaimed author and consultant

Erica Ariel Fox

For over two decades, Erica has innovated a body of thought – Winning From Within® – and created a methodology – VoyagerWork – that birthed a breathtaking integration of old and new wisdom on human development.

She is a pioneer in bringing profound exploration of the inner world to leaders who influence the outer world.

Erica Ariel Fox is the figure head of a growing global movement to evolve the art of leadership. She’s a pioneer among a new generation of experts bringing attention to an often overlooked dimension: leading not just your company or your team, but also leading yourself.

Erica’s writing, speaking, and teaching challenge long-standing assumptions about what leadership is all about. Based in research she does at Harvard and 20 years of advising the most senior leaders in the world, Erica developed a revolutionary approach that she calls “winning from within.” In her talks and executive briefings, Erica shows the way for people to understand why thriving — and even surviving — in today’s complex world, means they need to learn to transform themselves.

Erica earns rave reviews from C-suite executives and business partners alike. As one McKinsey & Company partner said, “Erica is simply one of the best leadership teachers of our time.” Established experts agree. Ronald Heifetz, author and global thought leader from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, described Erica as “the right person at the right time” to offer a “new, more integrated model” for leaders in any sector — “in business, in government, and in nonprofit organizations.”

Erica brings a wonderful combination of an academic’s credibility, a top consultant’s hands-on orientation, and her own down-to-earth personal style. She moves easily between citing a recent article in The Economist to sharing a funny story about her adventures as a step-mom. A seasoned speaker and expert, Erica is equally at home on the stage speaking to thousands of people as she is coaching in the intimate setting of a top team offsite. She appreciates the challenges people face every day, both at work and at home. As an audience member recently told her, “I feel grateful for the concrete advice I can start using on Monday.”

In her talks, both thought-provoking and uplifting, Erica conveys her core message: “The key to mastery, to achieving greatness…is not your toolbox. It’s you.” That’s how she opened her first book, Winning From Within: A Breakthrough Method for Leading, Living and Lasting Change, which became a New York Times bestseller. And it’s central to the messages she passionately shares with audiences around the world.
