Since its beginnings, the world of professional journalism has been a male-dominated industry, and women entering the field was a rarity. On February 27th, join Asia Society Texas Center as the Bank of America Women’s Leadership Series presents Women in Journalism: Ann Curry! This event will include a conversation with Ann Curry on women in the workplace and what it is like reporting while female, as well as an examination of how women's roles in journalism have transformed over the past 50 years.
Due to significant strides in gender parity beginning 50 years ago, women are more involved in professional journalism than ever. Women now dominate journalism schools, comprising more than two-thirds of graduates with degrees in journalism and mass communications; however, despite these advances, our modern-day newsrooms continue to tell a different tale. The media industry currently is composed of just one-third of women—a number that only decreases for women of color.
Ann Curry is an internationally recognized journalist with a long tenure at NBC News and a history of exclusive and news-breaking interviews. She has traveled the world to report on some of the key stories of our time, including wars, nuclear tensions, humanitarian and natural disasters, and human interest stories, elevating previously unheard voices as well as interviewing some of the most influential figures across the globe.
The Women's Leadership Series (WLS) celebrates influential, diverse women making a substantive impact in both the business and culture arenas, locally and globally.
Get inspired by Ann Curry next Thursday night! Women in Journalism: Ann Curry will be held at Asia Society Texas Center on Thursday, February 27th.
