Closing the Say Gap: Media Training Course that Helps Women Become Expert Sources
Hosted by Corporate Member Double Forte
Monday, October 26
9:00AM PST / 12:00PM EST
Did you know that almost 70% of the people quoted in the media are men and only 20% of “front page” sources are women?
Women’s voices are rarely seen or heard in media reports about business, cultural, scientific, and civic issues. The numbers for women of color and older women are even worse.
When we do see women quoted in the news, they are more likely to talking about TV, music, and movies, than they are sharing their expertise on the economy or world affairs.
This is a 90 minute masterclass taught by WOTVS Corporate Member, Double Forte.
Class enrollment is normally offered at $1,000. Double Forte has graciously offered their expertise to support our mission to empower and advance women by extending access to this Master Class FREE OF CHARGE to our WOTVS Corporate Members. They know to get ahead women first must be heard!
