Kick Starting the Journey to Memoir
Many people aspire to become authors to tell their own significant and impactful stories. This lecture addresses the many steps to getting started -- from identifying the story, finding resources, prioritizing topics, creating a book proposal to learning how to overcome the many obstacles on the road to project completion.
The Case for Media Diversity
From the 1968 Kerner Commission Report that blamed the media for civil disorders during the Civil Rights Movement, and after many years of news industry self-analysis, goal-setting, audits and training programs, a pioneering newspaper executive helps put into perspective the current landscape about racial and gender diversity. This lecture is for consumers of news and information as well as for those who are laboring in the contemporary vineyard of news media.
A Seat at the Table for Women
Shirley Chisholm said it best: "If they don't give you a seat at the table, bring a folding chair." Today, many women are ready to step up to the challenge of leadership, and this presentation by a women who became a pioneering newsroom and news industry leader delivers tools for women to take a seat at the table with knowledge and confidence. Many other women may not even know they can step up, and the presentation will encourage women (and the bosses who can enable them). Tools shared include internal and external resources for developing women as leaders, mentoring, work/life balance, and stretching goals. The discussion is useful not only for aspiring women leaders, but for corporate leaders who understand the values that women bring as leaders at all organizational levels, on boards of directors and in the C-suite.
