Chopra, who will be interviewed on stage by Women in the World founder Tina Brown, will discuss her career as an activist and entrepreneur. Recently, the “Baywatch” actress joined forces with Serena Williams in investing in the Bumble dating app and was instrumental in bringing the service to India. In addition, “If I Could Tell You Just One Thing,” Chopra’s new YouTube series featuring interviews with women including Diane Von Furstenberg, Awkwafina, and Simone Biles, will premiere on March 27.
The lineup for the event, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary at Lincoln Center from April 10-12, also includes Brie Larson, Cindy McCain, Susan Rice, Stacey Abrams, Ashley Judd, Jill Soloway, Bryan Cranston, and Anna Wintour with a keynote address from Oprah Winfrey.
Themes for the summit center on battling misinformation, advancing the #MeToo movement, preserving journalism, and other progressive topics. Wanda Sykes, Judy Gold, and Amber Ruffin will also take the stage together to talk about working in comedy as women in the midst of today’s political climate.
Launched in 2009, Women in the World summits have included appearances by Hillary Clinton, Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards.
