Maria Shriver is the mother of four, a Peabody and Emmy-winning journalist and producer, a six-time New York Timesbest-selling author, an NBC News Special Anchor reporting on the shifting roles, emerging power and evolving needs of women in modern life. She creates socially conscious television, books, films and digital media with the purpose of informing, inspiring and igniting hearts and minds in a discussion that produce positive impact in the world.
Shriver’s work is driven by her belief that all of us have the ability to be what she calls Architects of Change — people who see a problem in their own life or the community around them, then step out of their comfort zone and do what it takes to create the solution. Her website, MariaShriver.com, features life stories and life lessons from Architects of Change aimed at inspiring people to use their own ideas, influence and initiative to go out and make an impact on our world.
Shriver has long championed for women’s empowerment, economic entrepreneurship and social justice. To that end, she has created programs, issued reports and produced films all with the singular goal of advancing women both personally and professionally.
Architects Of Change LIVE
“I’ve always believed that when we come together in community to listen to thoughtful conversations, to listen to one another’s stories, to share our insights, our struggles, our journeys… the result is that minds open, hearts move, and change happens.” – Maria Shriver
As California’s First Lady, she convened the largest women’s conference in the country, gathering some of the world’s most important and inspiring leaders from all walks of life whom she described as Architects of Change. When she began MariaShriver.com, many of those people joined our rapidly growing online community, but soon told her they wanted more. They were seeking a place to gather, to convene, to grow and be part of a community that met in person. So they started Architects of Change LIVE —a gathering for and about people brave enough to challenge what is, imagine what can be, and move humanity forward.
These conversations with the world’s most insightful minds and inspiring hearts are intimate, informative and inspirational.
They are about moving us forward.
They are about igniting lives: yours, mine and ours.
