Influencing the Headlines: Empowering Women in Media

A couple of weeks ago I attended "Influencing the headlines" workshop and panel discussions organized by NCE. It was a great experience and I've been planning to blog about it ever since. Now is the time - the NCE announced their April Chicago workshop. I will give you the details below, but first - my musings : ). I've learned a lot and met quite a few interesting people. Being on NCE platform helps you to "be at the right place at the right time".
and they help you to get YOUR message across. It definitely helped me to get to a better place with my interviews and I hope for many more to come!

I feel that this is super important for entrepreneurs, especially those in the beginning stages of their business. The right media exposure at the right time can be a deciding moment in the life of a venture. In my filed it is certainly the case and I am looking forward to working with NCE. Any questions? Just ask!

And now to those lucky ones who might get to Chicago:

Influencing the Headlines: Empowering Women in Media

“Only 24% of the people heard or read about in print, radio and television
news are female” (The Global Media Monitoring Project, 2010).

“Only 15% of OpEd’s published are written by women. Why? Because the
submission rate by women is slightly over 15%" (The OpEd Project).

On April 8th, hosted by Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism and
sponsored in part by Cision, NewsCertified Exchange will bring its
"Influencing the Headlines: Empowering Women in Media" series to Chicago.
Created to promote the expertise, insight and thought leadership of female
professionals in the media, Influencing the Headlines provides a unique
networking, educational and positioning opportunity that is not afforded by
other conferences or media training services.

Influencing the Headlines limits participation to only one hundred and
brings together top leaders in industry, communications and journalism.
Chicago participants include: Lynn Sherr (award-winning broadcast
journalist who spent more than 30 years with ABC), Chicago’s own Sarah
Evans (a social media consultant and Twitter phenom with a follower base of
more than 56,000), NCE Expert Sharon Lechter (co-author of Rich Dad Poor
Dad, CEO and entrepreneur) Rusty Dornin (award-winning CNN journalist) and
many others.

There is a lot of depth to this program, so please take the time to look
