Genevieve Piturro • TEDxScarsdale
1 Story + The Human Connection = 7 Million Pajamas and Books
Ms. Piturro was a successful television marketing executive until she dramatically changed the direction of her life. In 2001, she jumped off the corporate ladder and founded the hugely successful national non-profit, Pajama Program, when a six-year-old girl’s question changed her life forever! Almost twenty years later, Genevieve’s Pajama Program has delivered 7 MILLION magical gifts of new pajamas and new books to children throughout the US. Genevieve is now a professional speaker and consultant on The Human Connection, sharing life and leadership lessons she learned through her Pajama Program journey. Her first book: Purpose, Passion and Pajamas: How to Transform Your Life, Embrace the Human Connection and Lead with Meaning, was released August 4, 2020. She has been interviewed for many local and national media outlets, including OPRAH, TODAY, GMA, The Early Show, CNN, Fox & Friends, O Magazine, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, and Parenting Magazine. Genevieve rang the Nasdaq Stock Market Opening Bell in 2016. She has been the recipient of many local and national awards as she inspires others to listen to their heart-voice in pursuing their passions.
