Event description

Description

The Guild is committed to starting conversations in 2018, beginning with our Winter Membership Meeting. From an increased Guild presence in each of our units to one-on-one meetings, and from membership development programming to consistent communications, we are making it a priority to engage in conversation with you about the issues you find important.

This year, we will hear from our first-ever keynote speaker. Guild member and New York Times’ investigative reporter Megan Twohey is no stranger to starting conversations. Twohey's investigation into the sexual harassment and assault allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein sparked a dialogue nationwide. We look forward to hearing about her experience in the field covering sexual harassment and how it sparked a movement that is ongoing and wide-reaching.

Local President Grant Glickson, Local Chair Lan Lecour and Secretary-Treasurer Vincent M. Mallozzi will be on hand to continue the dialogue with a discussion of the state of our union and what lies ahead in the coming year.

The meeting will take place at The NewsGuild of New York | 1500 Broadway, Suite 900 | New York, NY 10036.

We invite you to join your fellow Guild members on February 21st for conversations on journalism, how we're doing as a union, and where we're headed collectively as a profession. We'll end the evening with a member reception.


ABOUT THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Megan Twohey joined The New York Times as an investigative reporter in 2016. She recently co-authored articles exposing Harvey Weinstein's long history of alleged sexual harassment and abuse of women. Initially part of the U.S. presidential politics team, she helped to uncover Donald J. Trump's questionable treatment of women and his business ties to Russia. As a reporter at Reuters News, the Chicago Tribune, and The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, she wrote articles that revealed predatory doctors, untested rape kits, and an underground network where people discarded adopted children they no longer wanted. A native of Evanston, Illinois, she was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting and has won other national journalism awards. Her work has sent abusers to prison and prompted new laws to protect women and children.
