We are so excited to announce the launch of the SheHeroes Chatcast! In this 6-part series of conversations with accomplished SheHeroes in entertainment, publishing, film, sports and more we will chat about what inspires these amazing women to pave the way for the future of girls. We can't wait to talk to SheHeroes from all over who inspire!
So to celebrate our very first "chat"cast it only made sense to invite one of the Smartest Girls at the Party – Meredith Walker co-founder with Amy Poehler of Smart Girls at the Party! Listen as we talk Smart Girls, Comic Con and getting your head wet"!
Meredith began her television career under the tutelage of respected journalist Linda Ellerbee. While producing for Ellerbee’s Nick News on Nickelodeon, the show won the Peabody Award, as well as several Emmys. Meredith traveled to all 50 states to interview kids who had interesting stories to tell; this would become the foundation for her deepening interest in the lives of young people. Next, she served as head of the Talent Department at the iconic Saturday Night Live, where she met her best friend, Amy Poehler.
Now living in Austin, Texas, Meredith devotes her time and talent to what has become her passion: directing the organization she co-created with Amy Poehler, “Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls.” Meredith leads workshops and camps, and speaks at conferences nationwide to spread the Smart Girls message. Meredith also offers her time as a mentor at the Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders, and she is honored to serve on the ONE Girls and Women Advisory Board.
