Description

Please join us for a conversation with Athena Distinguished Fellow Farai Chideya, author, researcher, and the Journalism Program Officer at the Ford Foundation.

Before joining the Ford Foundation she was a fellow at Harvard's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy, studying media coverage of the 2016 election. During the 2016 election, she was a Senior Writer covering politics and data at ESPN's FiveThirtyEight and a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute.

She is the author of six books, the most recent of which is 2016's The Episodic Career: How to Thrive at Work in the Age of Disruption. In the past three decades, she has combined media, technology, and socio-political analysis as an award-winning author, journalist, professor, and lecturer.

With deep knowledge in a variety of disciplines, including the future of work, politics, culture, race, and technology, Chideya has frequently appeared on public radio and cable television, and has worked for CNN, ABC, and NPR as well as numerous other networks. Chideya is also the former longtime host of National Public Radio's News & Notes.

Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Chideya graduated from Harvard University in 1990. She currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Her tireless commitment to advancing the conversation around, gender, race, and culture has allowed her to challenge cultural conventions, promote diversity, and engage audiences in meaningful conversations about what it means to be alive today.

Our PowerTalk series feature today’s leaders in conversation on provocative topics of the moment. Each talk is followed by an audience Q&A.
