Former Editor-In-Chief, Teen Vogue

Elaine Welteroth is an award-winning journalist, thought leader, and the former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue. Throughout her meteoric ten year magazine career, she broke new ground as the youngest person and only the second African-American ever to hold the Editor-in-Chief title in Condé Nast’s 107-year history. In this role, she brought social consciousness to the pages of Teen Vogue and transformed the teen title into a credible news source. Previously, she held senior roles on the mastheads at Glamour and Ebony Magazine, and in 2012 she became Conde Nast’s first ever African-American Beauty Director. She's now a leading expert, advocate and voice for the next generation of change makers, bringing her fresh perspective to scripted and unscripted projects in TV and film. From writing on hit shows like "Grown-ish" to appearing on-air from ABC News to Netflix and The View to E!, Elaine continues blazing a career path that breaks the mold, inspiring a new generation of creative entrepreneurs.

Elaine is a San Francisco Bay Area native who currently resides in Brooklyn with her fiancé and is a proud volunteer at the Lower East Girls Club in New York City.
