Nancy Lublin, Esq.
A Woman of Vision, A Source of Hope,
and a Force for Social Justice
While still in law school and armed with a $5,000 inheritance from her immigrant great grandfather, at the age of 23, Nancy founded the organization Dress for Success, which to this day provides women with interview suits, career development training, and boosts in their self-confidence in more than 70 cities in four countries.
Since August 2003, CEO and Chief Old Person Nancy Lublin has overseen Do Something.org, a Web site dedicated to youth volunteering and activism, and led the effort to begin awarding more grant money to young people who want to make a difference. She turned the organization from a debt-ridden, “old school” not-for-profit with offices in multiple cities nationwide, to a fast-moving Internet company capturing the attention of a generation of do-ers.
Lublin was named to the World Economic Forum’s 100 Most Influential Young leaders (2007), one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of Worth (2006), received Fast Company’s Fast 50 Award (2002), and was named the NYC Women’s Commission Woman of the Year (2000).
