On Leaving Forbes


I have resigned as a contributor to Forbes.

Yesterday, I posted an interview with the executive director of Women, Action & the Media, a nonprofit organization dedicated to "building a robust, effective, inclusive movement for gender justice in media."

The editors found it inappropriate for the section of Forbes I have contributed my Social Ventures column to for the last three years - and they removed it this morning. I strongly disagree with their decision and we have parted ways.

Despite this, I appreciate the audience and platform Forbes provided, and am grateful for the opportunity to write about social entrepreneurship, citizens movements, new nonprofit models, and philanthropy. That conversation will continue elsewhere.

Thank you all for supporting my work - it is deeply appreciated.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
