Conversation Britton O’Daly, Editor in Chief, Yale Daily News interviews Gretchen Carlson, acclaimed broadcast news anchor and journalist, former host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson.
PANEL #1: Tapping Power: Solving Problems of Pay, Promotion, Representation
This panel will look how to achieve equality in pay, promotion and representation, with an emphasis on political action and power. Given the number of women newly elected and six now running for President, will (and can) the political landscape push change in the workplace? What are victories and missing pieces (wealth gap; protections for low-wage workers)?
Moderator: Molly Hensley-Clancy, National Political Reporter, BuzzFeed News.
Panelists: Elizabeth Crowley, Chair of the Board, 21 in ’21 ; Sherrell Dorsey, data journalist, CEO of ThePlug and BLKTECHCLT. Claudia Pagon Marchena, staffer for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who has benefitted from the Congresswoman’s move to provide all staffers “a living wage.” Kate Black, federal policy advisor and co-author of the forthcoming Represent: The Woman’s Guide to Running for Office and Changing the World.
PANEL #2: The New Workplace
Women get lots of advice (“lean in”) about how to behave in order to advance. How do we get past the idea that we have to fix ourselves – and instead change practices at work? This panel will consider the changing workplace, including how work is structured and done – and how that creates opportunities to repair a toxic work culture. It will also tackle economic threats, including challenges that come with a gig economy.
Moderator: Gretchen Carlson, acclaimed broadcast news anchor and journalist, former host of The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson.
Panelists: Alex Poon, Product Manager at Wayfair and Transgender Activist. Jennifer McFadden, Lecturer and Associate Director of Entrepreneurial Programs, Progam on Entreprenuership, Yale School of Management. Courtney Connley, Careers reporter at CNBC Make It. Sherrell Dorsey, data journalist, CEO of ThePlug and BLKTECHCLT. Molly Hensley-Clancy, National Political Reporter, BuzzFeed News.
