After graduating with a degree in broadcast journalism from New York University, Mina Sabet assumed she’d work in TV. And, indeed, for more than two decades, her career took her to various news organizations, ranging from CNN to FOX. 

In 2008, Sabet took over as executive producer for NBC10’s 10! Show. When that show ended its run in 2012 after 10 years, she took a significant change of course. “I wanted to do something that was more meaningful and impactful,” she says. “I have two kids who are older, and I felt it was really important to do something of service to humanity.” 

Sabet found what she was looking for as the director of video operations for TED, the acclaimed nonprofit conference series featuring expert speakers on education, business, science, tech and more. From her home in Wynnewood, she travels daily to TED headquarters in New York, while also traveling worldwide. “[TED is] very forward-thinking. It’s an environment where kindness is the most important thing,” she says. “I thrive in that environment, and I’m thrilled to finally be in a place where that’s such an important part of the package.”
