Lindsay Powers has traveled the world over the course of her 15-year journalism career. In recent years, she’s focused on kids, parenting, and the way we live today.
She was the editor in chief of Yahoo Parenting, which received more than 17 million monthly visitors and was a Webby Award Honoree. There, she worked with the Obama White House on a campaign promoting paid family leave. She also founded the #NoShameParenting movement, which has reached more than 170 million people (and counting) via social media.
Powers also served as the editorial director for lifestyle at Yahoo, which receives more than 600 million monthly visitors. In that role, she helped coordinate breaking news coverage as school violence was occurring, and, more often, the follow-up stories, features, and profiles of how the families and communities were affected and how people can keep school violence out of their own towns. She was the executive producer of web video series What It’s Like, which received millions of streams.
Powers’s work has appeared on/in Good Morning America, the Today Show, CNN, Fox News, the New York Post, the Chicago Tribune, AP, Reuters, and many more. Her first book, You Can’t F*ck Up Your Kids, will delve into research to prove that the kids are all right. It will be released by Simon & Schuster in early 2020. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband and their two sons, aged 2 and 5.
