Exceptional Women in Publishing Virtual Conference 2020

About this Event

Join us as we celebrate “Our Stories | Our World” – 22 years of Exceptional Women in Publishing, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 3. The theme of this year’s biannual conference is “Exploring America’s Mental Health Crisis” – a focus chosen long before the COVID-19 pandemic, but even more vital now as many people struggle with isolation and anxiety in this historic moment of fear and frustration.

Visit ewip.org for the latest on workshops, speakers and more!

As publishers, reporters, editors and more, we recognize that mental health issues are too often only covered in spurts in mainstream and social media – usually as a reaction to a headline-making event, such as a mass shooting, in which mental illness is often cited as a cause. Through discussions and workshops, we plan to examine deeper ways to inform and educate the public on these issues.

We’ll also explore the ripple effects of mental illness – how it impacts underserved individuals in the LGBTQ community and communities of color. We’ll look at the effects on journalists who cover traumatic events, such as raging wildfires or the months-long coronavirus coverage. And one workshop will even feature authors of children’s books, who seek to help kids who’ve been exposed to childhood trauma.

EWIP is a group of professionals leading the front lines of the publishing world. We are entrepreneurs, digital content creators, businesswomen, media executives, magazine and book publishers, producers, writers, editors and trailblazers, embracing all ethnicities in sharing our stories around our world.

EWIP/Women In Periodical Publishing – a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization – also welcomes donations year-round to support programs and activities that empower women, including the Our Stories | Our World conference.
