judgeIman Oubou
biography

Iman Oubou is a Moroccan-American self-made entrepreneur, published scientist, medical missionary and former beauty queen (Miss New York US 2015 and 2nd Runner Up at the 2015 Miss United States pageant) on a mission to change the women's media landscape. Through her diverse experience with business and STEM, Iman noticed gender disparities in the workforce and an omnipresent bias across printed and digital media representation of women; which inspired her to launch SWAAY, a digital platform highlighting stories of female leaders challenging the status-quo, and championing the voices of female change-makers through substantive and inspiring, non-clickbait content. Her podcast, Women Who SWAAY, which was syndicated by media conglomerate, Westwood One, was number 2 on iTunes in 2015, and was ranked in the top 5 best podcasts for women entrepreneurs by Inc. Magazine. Iman was named by CIO Magazine the number one “Female Entrepreneur to Watch” in 2018 and recently became the first ever “Visage Du Maroc” of 2018 (which translates to Face of Morocco), a new initiative uplifting female voices in Morocco and across the Middle East. This past October, Iman had the honors to be one of 2018's keynote speakers at Harvard Women In Business.
