Liza Donnelly, a celebrated New Yorker cartoonist and writer, is live-sketching the sessions happening at HT’s Leadership Summit 2016.

Donnelly has been contributing to The New Yorker since 1979 and now also does live cartooning for the US news channel CBS, besides publishing in other media forums, and has since carved out a niche for herself: issues centred around gender.

Take a look at her sketches from the 2016 HT summit:
