Caroline Fairchild will be the speaker at the Sun Valley Community School’s 2023 Commencement Ceremony this coming Sunday.

Forty-eight students will graduate in the ceremony, which will take place at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 4, at the Sun Valley Pavilion.

Fairchild, who graduated with the school’s class of 2008, is editor-in chief and vice president of Education at Lean In, which was founded by Sheryl Sandberg to help women achieve their ambitions and work to create an equal world. She also was editor at large for LinkedIn’s global news team and hosted LinkedIn News Live, the first daily live video show on LinkedIn News.

Since graduating from Duke University in 2012, her work as been featured in Fortune, Bloomberg Businessweek, The New York Times, CNBC, CBS this Morning, CNN, Politico, Forbes, USA Today, HuffPost and Recode. She has interviewed such people as Melinda Gates, Arianna Huffington and Warren Buffett.

In 2018 she was named one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Media. But, secretly, she admits that Duke basketball and dogs may surpass her passion for work and family.

Fairchild said she is thrilled to serve as commencement speaker: “So many of the experiences that made me who I am today happened thanks to the school. I can't wait to share some of them with the graduating class and invite them to take the leap into their next great adventure outside of SVCS." 

Head of School Ben Pettit said he is thrilled to welcome Fairchild back to the campus: “She has distinguished herself as an important voice in the new media landscape. Through her work, especially her focus on equity in the workplace, Caroline exemplifies the school’s mission to think critically, engage confidently, embrace challenges, and lead impactful, purposeful lives.”
