Victoria Wang is the co-founder of The Story Exchange. She is a former banker and marketing consultant with more than three decades of experience in the financial world. As she rose through the ranks of corporate America, she saw very few role models or even other women to talk to at senior levels. By the time she left she wanted to find ways to mentor women and to encourage them down the path to economic independence. Not one to sit home and retire, Victoria travels the world looking for stories and is learning to play jazz piano in her free time.
Sue Williams is the co-founder of The Story Exchange. She is a film producer and director who started her own business, Ambrica Productions, in 1986 to make documentaries with an international scope and interest. Under Sue’s leadership, Ambrica has produced awarding-winning films on a range of subjects, including feature-length documentaries about China for the PBS series Frontline and biographies of two American icons, Eleanor Roosevelt and Mary Pickford, for American Experience. She has three passports, which she rotates to keep herself out of trouble.
