USC Annenberg’s School of Journalism and the Center on Communication Leadership & Policy present a series of conversations focused on women and leadership in journalism. Hosted by CCLP Director and USC Professor Geoffrey Cowan and moderated by CCLP senior fellow, author and journalist Narda Zacchino, these discussions will explore the opportunities and challenges encountered in digital media, sports journalism, photojournalism and punditry.

Our January event features Pulitzer Prize-winning Los Angeles Times staff photographer Barbara Davidson, award-winning photojournalist and documentary photographer Marissa Roth, indigenous multimedia documentarian Pamela Peters, and award-winning photographer and author Lori Shepler. Annenberg Journalism School Director and Professor Michael Parks will chair this program.

What are the challenges of telling stories through photography? How have the changes in technology affected photojournalism? What does it take to pursue a career in photojournalism? Our panelists will share their experiences in the field and answer audience questions.

Join us in the Geoffrey Cowan Forum, ASCJ 207, on January 28th, 2014 from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. Lunch will be served. Please RSVP at
