“One woman came up with her own idea to honor her calling, and her name is Genevieve Piturro.” -Oprah Winfrey
Genevieve is an inspirational speaker, author, and consultant on the topic of Purpose. She was a successful TV executive until a sudden inner voice altered her life. She found purpose when a six-year-old girl in an emergency shelter asked her a simple question. In 2001, she jumped off the corporate ladder and founded the national non-profit, Pajama Program. This year, the Program celebrates 22 years, having delivered more than 7.5 million pajamas and books to date through 40+ chapters in the U.S.
Genevieve shares life and leadership lessons from her 5x award-winning bestseller, Purpose, Passion, and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection, and Lead with Meaning. Genevieve’s second book, Purpose, Passion, and Moxie: How to Lead the Way and Leave a Legacy, a workbook to help you start a nonprofit from scratch to success, was released in September 2023. A TEDx speaker, Genevieve has been interviewed on OPRAH, TODAY, GMA, The Early Show, CNN, Fox & Friends, O Magazine, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal. Genevieve rang the Nasdaq Bell in 2016.
