Keynote Speaker: Author, Feminist, Transgender Rights Activist, TV Host & Founder of #GirlsLikeUs

Janet Mock Biography

Janet Mock is a writer, director and producer whose memoir, Redefining Realness, debuted on the New York Times bestsellers list in 2014. Her second book, Surpassing Certainty, a memoir about her twenties, was released in 2017. She is a sought-after speaker, an advocate for trans rights, and the founder of #GirlsLikeUs, a social media project that empowers trans women.

Janet made television history last year as the first trans woman of color to write, direct and produce for a series with Ryan Murphy’s FX drama Pose, which has assembled the largest cast of trans actors in series regular roles ever for a scripted series and has received six Emmy nominations. The critically acclaimed show premiered its second season on June 11th and has been renewed for a third season. Janet has a number of additional groundbreaking TV projects in the works, and her historic multi-million dollar deal with Netflix has made her the first trans woman of color to secure an overall deal with a major studio.

Janet received the Harvard University’s Artist of the Year Award at the Harvard Foundation’s Culture Rhythms event this past March. Last year TIME listed her as one of the “100 Most Influential People of 2018”. In 2017 Variety named her one of its “Power of Women”, she was featured on Ebony’s Power 100 list, and the PEN Center USA honored her with an Award of Honor during their 27th annual Literary Awards Festival.

Born in Hawaii, Janet began her career as an editor at People.com and has written for The New Yorker, The New York Times, Marie Claire, Interview and Allure. She has also worked as a correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and a host for MSNBC, where she helmed the groundbreaking series — “So POPular!”— interviewing Lena Dunham, Salma Hayek and Issa Rae. Janet also produced and conducted all interviews for the HBO documentary, The Trans List, and hosted and produced the Lenny podcast Never Before, which featured in-depth interviews with everyone from Representative Maxine Waters and Tina Knowles to Kris Jenner and Oscar winner Tarell Alvin McCraney.

TIME called Janet one of “12 new faces of black leadership” and one of “the most influential people on the Internet” while Fast Company named her one of 2015’s “most creative people in business.” She's appeared on the covers of Entertainment Weekly, Paper, Out and Riposte magazines, and she's been interviewed on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Wendy Williams, Desus & Mero and “Real Time with Bill Maher”. Janet was also featured in Jay-Z’s music video for "Family Feud” alongside Beyoncé, Mindy Kaling and Rosario Dawson. The Ms. Foundation, Planned Parenthood, Feminist Press, GLSEN, Shorty Awards and the Sylvia Rivera Law Project have all honored Janet for her work.
