Event description

Description

About the workshop: Write to Change the World

Our programs are based on time-tested models of transformational learning. Games, high stakes scenarios, and live experiments challenge participants to think in new and bigger ways about what participants know, why it matters, and how to use it. We explore the source of credibility; the patterns and elements of persuasion; the difference between being “right” and being effective; how to preach beyond the choir; and how to think bigger about what you know—to have more impact in the world. Participants emerge with concrete results (op-ed drafts and more), and access to our national network of journalist mentors for individual follow up. The Mentor-Editor Program is our high-impact micro-mentoring program, in which experienced journalists volunteer to connect with and give feedback to new and promising voices. If you use the Mentor-Editor program within one month of taking an OpEd Project seminar, we will automatically extend your access for two additional months (three months in total).

Please complete the registration form on the next page to help us serve you better. The OpEd Project is an "everyone" project. We endeavor to have everyone in our rooms because we believe the world's conversation is smarter when everyone is speaking. We ask all of the questions that we do to hold ourselves accountable - to make sure we're doing our best to reach everyone. If you are purchasing this ticket for someone else, please fill in as much information as you can, and have them login to complete.

We'll be heading to a happy hour immediately following the seminar from approximately 5:30-7:00pm. You're welcome to invite your friends, family, and colleagues. You will receive an e-mail confirming all of the details the week prior to the seminar date.

Who should attend?

We welcome everyone, across color, creed, class, gender, and beyond. We especially welcome underrepresented voices. This program is equally suitable for those with or without publishing experience.

Why this matters

The voices and opinions we hear in the world come from an extremely narrow slice of society: mostly white, privileged, Western, and overwhelmingly male. What could we accomplish if we invested in all our brain power?

Scholarships

The OpEd Project works to ensure that at least 2 - 3 scholarship recipients attend every workshop. If you, or someone in your network would benefit from this opportunity, please visit our website theopedproject.org/scholarships and submit a scholarship application.

About Us

The OpEd Project is a think tank and leadership organization that accelerates the ideas and impact of underrepresented voices, including women. We are a community of journalists and thought leaders who actively share knowledge, resources and connections across color, creed, class, sexuality, gender and beyond. We have been featured in most major media. We have stunning results. We believe the best ideas, regardless of where they come from, should have a chance to be heard and change the world.
