Sally Kohn is one of the leading progressive voices in America today. A CNN political commentator and contributor at The Daily Beast, Sally is a popular keynote speaker who makes audiences laugh and think.
Previously a Fox News contributor — the inspiration for her widely-seen TED Talk — Sally's writing has appeared in the Washington Post, New York Times, New York Magazine, More Magazine, RollingStone.com, Elle.com, USA Today, Time, Afar Magazine and many other outlets. Her work has been highlighted by outlets ranging from the Colbert Report to the National Review. Sally is ranked by Mediaite as one of the 100 most influential pundits on television and by the Advocate as the 35th most influential LGBT person in the media. Though she insists that doesn't mean she's the 35th gayest LGBT person in the media (she ranks far higher on that measure!).
Sally is a highly in-demand keynote speaker, with audiences including Mount Holyoke College, Spotify, the University of Kansas, Knoll, and Southern New Hampshire University. Sally also works as a media and public speaking coach, training hundreds of companies, organizations and individual leaders to be their most effective and impactful selves in public.
