Stephanie Mehta

Editor-in-chief, Fast Company

While other media brands descend on Davos to cover its players and agenda through wide-ranging, all-encompassing angles, only one brand and one leading, barrier breaking journalist will focus fully on the beat of innovation. Stephanie is one of the most dynamic and perceptive global journalists today, as the first woman and person of color to lead Fast Company in its 25 year history.

 

In collaboration with HCL Technologies, Stephanie leads Fast Company’s #FCDavosDialogues editorial initiative by curating compelling panels, thought-leadership interviews, on-the-ground reporting content at the 2020 World Economic Forum for a bespoke, multi-day content experience.

Fast Company

Driving real change demands more than new technologies or exclusive content. It takes bold vision, an innovative lens, and distinctive execution. And those who think and act differently produce the greatest impact on tomorrow.

 

At Davos, HCL and Fast Company – the world’s leading business media brand covering innovation and impact, will further a shared narrative that only the convergence of technological innovation, human ingenuity and intent, and critical thinking can solve the world’s toughest challenges.
