I was asked to be a part of “Worth It Work It,” a website dedicated to encouraging women to pursue a career in the media. The founder of the site, Janessa Jackson, a master’s student studying Media & Public Affairs at George Washington, contacted me to speak on a panel focused on Video/TV production. Given my current role at PBS and Women's Media Center, in conjunction with my past experience at BBC, Paramount Pictures, The American Association of University Women, and Feminist Majority Foundation, she thought I would bring a unique perspective to the panel. Thrilled to accept her offer, I shared the stage with three talented, professional women; I was the only student. Each woman brought her own expertise to the discussion, and I centered my platform around the intersection of women, media, and politics and how working for Women’s Media Center, one of the companies who helped produce the film Miss Representation, became my call to action, my ‘aha moment’.
