EWIP is pleased to announce that Kara Swisher is the sixteenth recipient of the annual Exceptional Woman In Publishing Award. The EWIP Award is given to a woman who has achieved a high standard of professional excellence, has made extraordinary contributions in publishing, and has demonstrated success and leadership in exceptional ways.
Ms. Swisher is an author and well-respected journalist, and along with Walt S. Mossberg, built the technology site and brand, now retired, AllThingsD. With the start of 2014, Swisher and Mossberg launched the independent news site, Re/code (recode.net) with the “aim to reimagine tech journalism.” Their new company, Revere Digital, a multifaceted business of breaking news, videos, apps, and conferences will usher in the debut of the Code Conference in May. Swisher’s hard-hitting insight and investigation of Silicon Valley’s leaders, their companies and products will continue to be influential.
