Speaking Up As A Leader

AN OMEGA WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP CENTER PROGRAM: SPEAKING UP AS A LEADER

Women's Voices in the New Media

Marianne Schnall, Jamia Wilson, Vanessa Valenti

Three influential movers and shakers in online media and gender justice draw on their experience—from award-winning websites, the storytelling and innovation of TED talks, leading-edge media strategies, over a half dozen books, and more than a decade of plotting and celebrating social change—to share what they’ve learned along the way.

Together, we explore a bold new cultural paradigm as we create and tell the story of self and the story of change. Through strategies and exercises we develop skills to:

  • Establish a public platform for our voice
  • Understand the basics of blogging, communications, and consulting
  • Build a freelance career and portfolio
  • Navigate online organizing
  • Skillfully manage controversy
  • Grow community both online and off

This workshop builds a powerful network of 21st-century leaders and changemakers.
