According to ted.com: “How do you tell women’s stories? Ask women to tell them. At TEDxABQ, Megan Kamerick shows how the news media underrepresents women as reporters and news sources, and because of that tells an incomplete story.”
“Megan Kamerick is a senior reporter at New Mexico Business Weekly. She has sixteen years reporting experience — having written for the San Antonio Business Journal and New Orleans CityBusiness — and has been recognized by the Association of Area Business Publications for an editorial on civil liberties. From 2009 to 2011, Kamerick was president of the Journalism & Women Symposium (JAWS), an organization dedicated to advancing and the careers of women in journalism and to a balanced representation of women in media. She hosts a women’s newscast every two weeks for the local public radio, KUMN, and produces and hosts the show Public Square on New Mexico PBS.”
Great talk. Enjoy.
For those of you not familiar with TED Talks here is a brief summery from www.ted.com:
“TED is a small nonprofit devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. It started out (in 1984) as a conference bringing together people from three worlds: Technology, Entertainment, Design. Since then its scope has become ever broader. Along with two annual conferences — the TED Conference in Long Beach and Palm Springs each spring, and the TEDGlobal conference in Oxford UK each summer — TED includes the award-winning TEDTalks video site, the Open Translation Project and Open TV Project, the inspiring TED Fellows and TEDx programs, and the annual TED Prize”
I look forward to your thoughts and comments!
