Thanks to @ONA for having me speak about motherhood: both living it and newsrooms and the huge problems how it see it covered. If you missed it, you can listen to the podcast version:…
@ONA the talk was billed as being about motherhood and centered the experiences of mothers, but really it was about broadening all of the diversity & gender equity conversations newsrooms are having. Also, coverage of motherhood is FULL of stereotypes that are rarely called out.
@ONA I gave this talk in an out of the way room, up against a ton of popular speakers to 25 very engaged women. No men showed up. This is a problem, because men still have disproportionate power in newsrooms & all industries. The treatment of mothers isn't just a "niche" women's issue

Lesson number 1: Just because an audience isn't on a platform, doesn't mean that they're not online. They're just on other networks. #ona19 #ona19igstories
