Jennifer Rudolph Walsh has sat at the nexus of entertainment and media for nearly thirty years. She was WME's sole female board member and global head of its literary, lectures, and conference divisions, and she represented such luminous clients as Oprah Winfrey, Brene Brown, Alice Munro, and Sue Monk Kidd. In 2016, she co-founded Together Live, a traveling intersectional women's tour driven by the mission of finding purpose and community through authentic and heartfelt storytelling. Over four years, the tour visited thirty-five cities, lit over fifty thousand souls on fire, and produced three seasons of a widely streamed podcast. In 2020, Jennifer co-founded Know My Story, a digital movement that celebrates the joy and resilience of Black and Brown voices. She serves as a board advisor to SeeHer, the National Book Foundation, and her alma mater, Kenyon College. After a lifetime in New York City, Jennifer relocated to San Francisco to walk beneath the redwoods with her family and three dogs.

If you are looking for a little bit of gentleness, a warm word from writers you can trust, well, here it is."--Glamour "Unlike many women's conferences, Together Live is not about a work-life balance or having it all, but rather focused on convening women across diverse backgrounds and generations to share their raw stories, build community, take action, and find self-love."--Bustle "[Jennifer Rudolph] Walsh has turned her love for storytelling into a live event where women of all backgrounds can come together to share their unique stories. . . .

Ford on what can come after heartbreak, Austin Channing Brown on the time the word 'ambitious' hit differently, Priya Parker on the wisdom of a group and the wisdom of the self, Jillian Mercado on losing and gaining your freedom, Natalie Guerrero on dismantling silence, and more."--goop "Together Live is an inspiring conference that unites diverse women through storytelling, and we need it now more than ever."--HelloGiggles "Each essay is infused with sincerity and introspection, creating a connection with readers as the contributors reveal their vulnerabilities with candor and emotion. . . .
