"Magazines From Now On: What Works (and What Doesn’t) in the Age of Twitter and Facebook," Glamour Magazine Editor Cindi Leive.
Under Lieve, Glamour has received a record number of National Magazine Awards, including the top honor, Magazine of the Year. Lieve is also the women's lifestyle contributor for NBC's Today show, where she frequently discusses women's issues ranging from fashion to politics. She serves on the board of directors for The International Women's Media Foundation and is a former president of the American Society of Magazine Editors.
Leive's work has also been recognized outside the media industry. In 2011 the Avon Foundation for Women honored her with their Voice for Change Champion Award for the magazine's Tell Somebody campaign, which encouraged women to talk about relationship violence.
Prior to joining Glamour in May 2001, Leive served as editor-in-chief of Self magazine. Before Self, Leive was deputy editor of Glamour for 11 years. A graduate of Swarthmore College, Leive began her career in publishing at The Paris Review and The Saturday Review. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband, film producer Howard Bernstein, and their children, Lucy and Isaac.
The Mingledorff-Lorimer Lecture in Print Media was created by the generosity of Huldah Mingledorff-Lorimer. Mrs. Mingledorff's father-in-law, George Horace Lorimer, was editor of The Saturday Evening Post from 1899-1937. Lorimer is credited with discovering or promoting some of the best writers of the day.
