Ms. Loreen Arbus
President, The Loreen Arbus Foundation, Disability Rights Advocate, Artist, Composer, Author, Producer, Writer, Professional Dancer and Choreographer 
Loreen Arbus is currently the President of The Loreen Arbus Foundation, The Goldenson-Arbus Foundation, and Loreen Arbus Productions, Inc. Through these organizations and in her personal endeavors, Ms. Arbus is a tireless advocate for women and girls; a champion for one of the world’s largest minorities, people with disabilities; and is passionate about encouraging equal  opportunities in television, film, communications, and the arts.  
A high-profile professional and pioneer in media, Ms. Arbus is a sought-after speaker at national and international conferences. Among her many appearances, she has spoken at TEDxWomen and the United Nations.  
For years, she taught both “How to Develop and Sell Your Project for Television” and Argentine Tango at the Learning Annex in L.A. and New York. As a disability rights activist, she is committed to the work initiated by her parents (Isabelle and Leonard H. Goldenson, Founder and Chairman of ABC) who co-founded the United Cerebral Palsy Foundation and what is today the fifth largest health agency in America, United Cerebral Palsy (UCP), which serves people with a wide range of disabilities.
The author of six non-fiction books, she has also written countless articles for many national publications and was twice nominated for an Emmy® Award. She co-wrote the first book on AIDs, “Everything You Need to Know About AIDs,” with Dr. Mathilde Krim.  
She holds the trailblazing distinction of being the first woman to head programming for a U.S. network, a feat accomplished twice (both at Showtime and Cable Health Network/Lifetime). In addition to helping establish these two cornerstones of cable television, she subsequently launched Loreen Arbus Productions, Inc., an independent television production company with an emphasis on non-fiction programming.
