UPCOMING EVENT! When We Lead: Women’s Voices Reshaping Our Media

THURSDAY APRIL 11, 2019 AT 7:00PM TO 8:00PM
John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, Room U100, New York, NY 10003

From the #MeToo movement to the continued fight for workplace equity and reproductive justice, we are in a moment of reckoning. As a society, we’re confronting America’s history of gender inequality and how it affects our everyday lives. Now, ahead of the 2020 presidential election, we want to understand how we can build a better future.

Women in the media are pivotal in shaping and amplifying the narrative of this critical moment. So as we gear up for this momentous election, we’ll bring together some of today’s leading journalists to tackle the biggest questions before us: How is the media industry changing as a result of women’s voices? How do media narratives influence the way we think about women and power?
