Join us on Wednesday, April 27th at 2 PM EST, for a webinar presented by
The OpEd Project Founder and Director, Kate Orenstein.
 

THINKING BIGGER

What is the bigger picture, and how do you and your ideas fit into it? Your ability to see the bigger picture is what will make it accessible to you – and sometimes what will make it exist at all (a definition of thought leadership).

In this webinar, created specifically for NCRW, we will explore the value of thinking both small and large,  how to triangulate around your areas of specific expertise to think more carefully and more expansively about what you know, why it matters, and how it connects with larger human concerns.

RSVP today for this exclusive chance to experience The OpEd Project’s acclaimed instruction, and add your voice to the growing chorus of women writing, speaking, and sharing their opinions in the public sphere.

“Orenstein’s class was incredible, inspirational. She gets you to ask the important questions: What do you have to say? Who do you want to reach? And how can you express it to get heard? . . .”—Stacy Sullivan, Senior Editor, Institute for War and Peace Reporting

“The Op-Ed Project seminar got my juices flowing like nobody’s business. A gigantic thanks for teaching us how to use our voices to make a difference. . . .”—Manisha Thakor, MBA, co-author with Sharon Kedar of On My Own Two Feet: a Modern Girl’s Guide to Personal Finance

The OpEd Project is an initiative to expand the range of voices we hear from in the world, with an immediate focus on increasing the volume of women thought leaders in the public sphere to a tipping point. Since women currently do not submit to key opinion forums with anywhere near the frequency that men do—and because these gateway forums feed all other media and drive thought leadership and policy— The organization targets and trains women experts at top universities, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations to write op-eds and more broadly to take thought leadership positions in their fields, connecting them with a national network of high-level mentor-editors, and channeling them to the media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms.

CATHERINE (KATIE) ORENSTEIN, Founder and Director of The OpEd Project, has contributed to the op-ed pages of the New York Times, Washington Post and Miami Herald. Her commentaries on women, politics, popular culture, mythology and human rights have been nationally syndicated and appear in anthologies. She has lectured at Harvard and appeared on ABC TV World News, Good Morning America, MSNBC, CNN and NPR All Things Considered. A graduate of Harvard (MA) and Columbia (MA) universities, she is the author of Little Red Riding Hood Uncloaked: Sex, Morality & the Evolution of a Fairy Tale. Orenstein is a fellow with The Woodhull Institute for Ethical Leadership, and a fellow of the Echoing Green Foundation.
