  • Speaker: Disha Raychaudhuri of NJ Advance Media
  • Date/Time: Thursday, Mar. 8 at 3:30pm
  • Location: Halsted
  • Audio file: No audio file available.

This session will be an off-the-record discussion about being a woman in the newsroom. Some topics we'll bring up will include: Why is it that most of the people graduating from J-Schools are women yet newsrooms are still male-dominated? Why are women less likely to get promoted and feel way more undervalued in their work? Also, why newsrooms are so behind in having decent maternity policies?
