Purpose: This 36-month project aims to increase leadership opportunities for women by advancing their representation as expert sources in media, conferences and candidates for corporate recruitment. The organization will engage media leaders, conference planners and corporate recruiters to identify industry practices and barriers to women’s representation and determine effective actions to address these barriers. In collaboration with partners such as academic and sector organizations, the project will also identify women experts across all fields and disciplines to showcase their expertise in a national online tool to be used by journalists, conference planners and corporations seeking women who are qualified as expert sources.
