Keynote Speaker: Jane Pauley

Journalist, Author, and Philanthropist


Jane Pauley

A familiar face on morning, daytime, and primetime television, Jane Pauley has been one of the most respected figures in American broadcast journalism for more than thirty years. Pauley became the first woman to anchor a weekday evening newscast in Chicago. Only one year later, Pauley vaulted to the top of network news as co-host of NBC’s TODAY—at the age of 25. She anchored Dateline NBC for more than a decade and hosted her own daytime program, The Jane Pauley Show. A longtime advocate for children’s health and education, Pauley is also a highly regarded spokesperson for mental health. In 2009, the Jane Pauley Community Health Center was opened in Indianapolis, with a mission to provide a collective approach to accessible primary healthcare with local partners to any and all individuals and families regardless of insurance status.

Pauley has written two New York Times bestsellers: a memoir, Skywriting: A Life Out of the Blue (2004) and Your Life Calling: Reimagining the Rest of Your Life (2014).
