In 1976, Caitlyn Jenner broke the world decathlon record at the Olympic Games in Montreal, and earned the title of “World’s Greatest Athlete.” Forty years later, she captured the world’s attention again when she revealed that she is a transgender woman during an ABC News special with Diane Sawyer. Caitlyn was named Barbara Walters’ Most Fascinating Person of the Year in 2015, runner-up for the 2015 Person of the Year, Out Magazine’s 2015 Newsmaker of the Year and one of Glamour Magazine’s Women of the Year. In April of 2017, Caitlyn shared her story in her memoir The Secrets of My Life, co-authored by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Buzz Bissinger.
During an IVY Idea’s Night in Los Angeles, IVY’s Sarah Zapp sat down with Caitlyn to discuss her incredible journey and about life post-transition.
