Diana Drake is managing editor of Knowledge@Wharton High School (KWHS), an initiative of the Wharton School that promotes financial literacy, entrepreneurship and leadership among high school students and teachers around the world. Drake has been working as a business journalist for more than 22 years. She spent 10 years as a reporter, award-winning writer and ultimately managing editor for NJBIZ, New Jersey’s only weekly, statewide business publication, before leaving in 2001 to start a freelance writing and editing business.
Since then, she has written numerous business feature articles, produced monthly newsletters, managed the writing and editing for several magazine supplements, and led the content development for dynamic projects like the Goldman Sachs Knowledge@Wharton 10,000 Women e-portal. 10,000 Women promotes the power of entrepreneurship to transform emerging economies, and the portal features the stories of enterprising women and their businesses. Drake has focused much of her energy since 2008 on developing KWHS, which launched in March 2011.
