Nancy Lublin does not sleep very much. Nancy is the founder and CEO of Crisis Text Line, which has processed over 50 million messages in four years and is one of the first “big data for good” orgs. Previously, she was CEO of DoSomething.org for 12 years, taking it from bankruptcy to the largest organization for teens and social change in the world. Her first venture was Dress for Success, which helps women transition from welfare to work in almost 150 cities in 22 countries. She founded this organization with a $5,000 inheritance from her great-grandfather. Before leading three of the most popular charity brands in America, Nancy was a bookworm. She is the author of four books and is a board member of McGraw-Hill Education. She studied politics at Brown University, political theory at Oxford University as a Marshall Scholar, and has a law degree from New York University. Nancy was a judge for 2017’s Miss USA Pageant (an honor she thought was hilarious) and is a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum. (She has attended Davos multiple times.) She was named Schwab Social Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014 and has been recognized as one of the NonProfit Times’s Power and Influence Top 50 three times. She is married to Jason Diaz and has two children who have never tasted Chicken McNuggets.
