Speaker Bio
New York Times best-selling author Emily Ratajkowski has established herself as a multifaceted talent: entrepreneur, writer, actress, model and activist.

Most recently, she added podcast host to her list of titles, launching an original series titled “High Low with EmRata.” The podcast marries highbrow and lowbrow topics, exploring whatever is on Ratajkowski's mind, from politics, philosophy and feminism, to sex, pop culture, and beyond.

Over the past five years, Ratajkowski has successfully translated her 29M+ following on Instagram into a successful DTC apparel line, Inamorata, all while continuing to work as a highly sought after fashion model. She has appeared on the covers of dozens of major fashion magazines and is currently the face of L’Oréal’s hair care line Kerastase as well as multiple other fashion companies. As an actress, she has appeared in films such as David Fincher’s Gone Girl and Amy Schumer’s I Feel Pretty. Ratajkowski is also outspoken politically, continually using her platform to advocate for her beliefs.

Her debut essay collection “My Body” was released by Metropolitan Books on November 9, 2021, becoming an instant New York Times Best Seller. “My Body” is a profoundly personal exploration of feminism, sexuality, and power, of men's treatment of women and women's rationalizations for accepting that treatment. The essays chronicle moments from Ratajkowski’s life while investigating the culture’s fetishization of girls and female beauty, its obsession with and contempt for women’s sexuality, the perverse dynamics of the fashion and film industries, and the gray area between consent and abuse. Her book deal was solidified by her New York Magazine essay – the magazine’s most read story of 2020 – entitled ""Buying Myself Back,” which led to widespread discourse around copyright and image ownership. Following the essay, in April 2021, she created a conceptual art piece and NFT that was sold via Christie's auction, continuing to raise questions about the nature of authorship while returning an appropriated Instagram post to its digitally native terrain.
