“All of our instructors connect back to the message of owning who you are, without apology,” said David Rogier, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass. “‘How to Be a Boss’ isn’t just a tagline or a campaign; it’s also a movement for life-long learning. We’re incredibly honored to have Anna represent our collective force of instructors as the face of our first campaign.”

Wintour has also teamed up with MasterClass to share the secrets of her success with the world, via a new MasterClass on creativity and leadership. In it, she offers advice on how to lead with vision and without apology, covering topics such as ‘Plant Your Flag,’ ‘Yes or No. Never Maybe,’ ‘Impact Isn’t Seasonal,’ ‘Take Credit. Give Credit,’ ‘Own Who You Are,’ and more.
