NEW YORK, NY -- On Wednesday, May 1, 2024, Eve Burton was awarded Crain's New York Business 2024 "Women of Influence" award on behalf of her mentorship of women. 

The celebration was held over lunch at the Marriott Marquis in New York City. 

Katie Bailey, HearstLab Senior Director, and local members of the team accepted the award on Eve’s behalf. In her remarks, Katie shared three of Eve’s most relevant career and life lessons:

  • Find sponsors not only mentors. Mentors listen. Sponsors act.
  • Take risks. Success is not final. Failure is not fatal.
  • Empathy is our greatest gift. Use it.

In Crain's New York Business's nomination of Eve, they profile how she has “walked the talk” throughout her 21 years at Hearst. Every team Eve has managed has been composed of at least 50% women. Eve also launched HearstLab, Hearst’s venture arm that invests exclusively in early-stage, women-led technology startups. The impetus? Eve heard a statistic that moved her to take action as an accomplished businesswoman and woman executive: less than 2% of venture funding goes to women-led companies.

Since its inception, HearstLab has invested in more than 70 female-founded companies globally with a collective valuation of $2.5 billion.

Its unique ecosystem includes the HearstLab Scout Network, an organization of nearly 200 women leaders and executives from Hearst businesses around the world. Within this network, accomplished women exchange insights, methods and new opportunities with HearstLab founders to ensure their business’s growth and success. 

HearstLab is especially grateful to the Crain’s New York Business’s newsroom for recognizing Eve and her investment in and mentorship of women in business worldwide. Crain’s history of identifying and profiling New York City’s most powerful women demonstrates their shared commitment to celebrating women leaders who use their position to open doors for others.

HearstLab would also like to extend a congratulations to all the honorees, finalists, and winners. Each woman leader and women-forward workplace is moving mountains in their respective industry and building ecosystems where New Yorkers, especially women, can flourish in both their work and life.
