Julie Lythcott-Haims believes in humans and is deeply interested in what gets in our way. For over a decade she served as Stanford University’s dean of freshmen. With more parents controlling their students’ experience, relationships, academic work, and decisions, her message is something that will resonate with every educator, student, and parent.
She is the New York Times bestselling author of How to Raise an Adult which gave rise to a popular TED Talk; her second book is the critically-acclaimed and award-winning prose poetry memoir Real American; her third book, Your Turn: How to Be an Adult, has been called a “groundbreakingly frank” guide to adulthood.
Julie holds degrees from Stanford, Harvard Law, and California College of the Arts. She currently serves on the boards of Black Women’s Health Imperative, Narrative Magazine, and on the Board of Trustees at California College of the Arts. She serves on the advisory boards of LeanIn.Org, Sir Ken Robinson Foundation and Baldwin For the Arts.
