Women, Media and the Gender Lens

The 2017 Women’s Leadership Conference at the University of New Haven, focusing on the theme of Women, Media and the Gender Lens, will bring together students, faculty, professionals and members of the community for a day-long exploration and discussion of women, media and communication. We will be talking to a wide range of female communications professionals, while taking a critical look at how women are represented, misrepresented or erased from the media.

The conference is designed to foster participation and connection, with break-out sessions and small group discussions in addition to our featured presentations.

Join us on March 31, 2017 for the University of New Haven’s annual Women’s Leadership Conference.
