I worked with Ivanka Trump on her Women Who Work brand in 2014-2015. In early 2016, I told her I couldn't work with her any longer unless she took a stand against her dad.
Shortly after the election, a swastika was painted in the playground where my kids played in Brooklyn with her family name. I sent a set of pleading emails to her team asking her to act.
I have since given those emails to the NYT, the New Yorker, and a very prominent investigative journalist. I have been interviewed about this many many times.
None of this is a secret.
Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.
That relationship ended when she refused to condemn her father's racism. Full stop.
Now let's get back to work.
