Exclusive Video: Tory Burch On Embracing Ambition and Being Bold

Designer and CEO Tory Burch just released a new campaign through her Tory Burch Foundation, which seeks to empower women entrepreneurs, urging those to embrace ambition.

Once regarded as a negative trait among women in the workplace, Burch is calling upon strong women to embrace ambition and own it.

"In my first interview with The New York Times in 2004, when the reporter mentioned the word 'ambitious,' I commented that the word annoyed me. A friend of mine said, 'You should never shy away from that word.' She was right," Burch writes on her foundation's page.

MAKERS caught up with Burch in a five-question exclusive interview on International Women's Day (March 8), to explore her thoughts on feminism, ambition, and how she continues to actively #BEBOLD. Watch the full interview in the video player above.
