Currently, Bush also hosts a Wondery podcast, “Work in Progress,” and co-hosts the iHeartRadio podcast “Drama Queens,” during which she and co-hosts Hilarie Burton Morgan and Bethany Joy Lenz relive and reclaim nine seasons of the beloved drama “One Tree Hill.” “Drama Queens” has been well-received by the “One Tree Hill” fandom globally, while “Work in Progress” features frank, funny, personal, professional and sometimes even political conversations about how people have gotten to where they are and where they think they’re still going. These discussions stem from Bush’s “aha” moment of realizing you’re allowed to be a masterpiece and a work in progress, simultaneously.

In July 2021, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Bush was invited to testify before the House Select Subcommittee on Vaccines, specifically to address vaccine hesitancy among young people. Bush was joined by notable scientists, doctors and COVID-19 survivors and delivered a five-minute opening statement, during which she proclaimed: “Vaccines will save lives, and in particular it will allow young people to get back to the futures that they’re pushing…. Medicine is not partisan.”

Named one of the most charitable celebrities by CNN, Bush devotes her free time to bettering girl’s education and the environment. She inspires millions as she uses her personal platform and social media influence to raise awareness and funds for great causes. Since taking to social media to share her passion for change, Bush has inspired young people to join her in raising nearly half a million dollars for charity; she has built three primary schools in Guatemala and Laos; and she now serves as a global ambassador for Glamour’s The Girl Project. Her focus with The Girl Project is to break down the barriers to secondary school education that girls face. They are currently working in 96 countries around the world.

In 2019, Bush partnered with Jane Walker, a sister brand of Johnnie Walker, and has been active bringing forward more firsts for women within the entrepreneurial industry. Bush also co-founded and sits on the board for I am a voter®, which is a nonpartisan movement that aims to create a cultural shift around voting and civic engagement by unifying around a central truth: Our democracy works best when we all participate. In 2021, Bush joined Fashionkind as a co-founder and member of the advisory board. She works alongside founder and CEO Nina Farran to produce ethical and environmentally friendly luxury fashion from around the world. Most recently, Bush and her business partner, Nia Batts, joined the First Women’s Bank as strategic advisors, alongside Billie Jean King.
