Women in Leadership - Own Your Story, Inspire Deep Connections

Women for Economic and Leadership Development (WELD) is delighted to announce its 2020 Keynote speaker. Join us for the most engaging discussion on Women in Leadership - Own Your Story, Inspire Deep Connections that you will ever hear by Bofta Yimam. Bofta is an Emmy® & Murrow Award-Winning Journalist, D.C.-based National News Correspondent, International Speaker and Executive Coach. She was recently honored with the Asian-African Chamber of Commerce & Industry International Leadership Award and the Black Business Review’s Top 40 Under 40 Professionals Award. From London to Washington D.C., Bofta has captured global crowds with her dynamic style and presence.

Bofta is the first Ethiopian-American newscaster to receive an Emmy for her work. For more than a decade, she’s reported live on the morning and evening news for TV affiliates across the nation, including CBS and ABC. Most recently, she’s reported from the White House and Capitol Hill on the impeachment inquiry.

As a speaker, she mixes high energy storytelling and unique content to empower audiences. From teenage depression to an award-winning broadcasting career to building a successful business from scratch, Bofta works to inspire others that anything is possible. She firmly believes that adversity has its advantages and there’s incredible power in owning your story — and that’s what her clients learn to embrace, too.
