Shine Your Light: Charting a Leadership Path for Yourself and Others

Sue Suh (she/her), 1992 Scholar, most recently had the joy of serving as the first Chief People Officer and Chief Impact Officer for the 100-year-old global media company TIME, whose commitment to trust, integrity, equality and courage shines a light on the stories and storytellers who move the world.

Before joining TIME, Sue’s career spanned philanthropy and public service around the globe, including with The Rockefeller Foundation and the U.S. Departments of State and Defense, beginning her federal government career as a Presidential Management Fellow.

Sue is a relentless optimist and passionate about the power of media, education, the performing arts and sports to effect transformational change. She currently sits on the Center for Public Integrity’s Board of Directors, the Emma Bowen Foundation’s National Advisory Council, and the Board of Advisors for Columbia Journalism School’s Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Business and Economics. Sue was also honored to be named one of the Top 100 Women Leaders of New York for 2021, a 2021 New Yorker for New York and a 2019 Folio:100 member in the C-Suite category.

Outside of media, she serves on the Board of the Classical Theatre of Harlem, and recently served on the Boards of Special Olympics Asia Pacific and the Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation. Sue graduated from Princeton University (Politics BA) and Columbia University (Political Science MA), and was grateful to earn a Fulbright award to teach in her family’s homeland of South Korea. She loves supporting amazing humans who seek to move the world forward, and she can’t wait to meet you here at the Leadership Summit!
