The day’s events will bring together thought leaders, industry professionals and scholars from around the country to participate in active conversation about the topic of women moving ahead.

Conference participants will explore the role of women in leadership positions in the fields of advertising, broadcasting, digital media, newspaper, public relations and magazines. The conference will also release the results of the 2018 Kopenhaver Survey on The Role and Status of Women in the Communication Industries: Are Communication Professionals Achieving their Potential.

The Kopenhaver Center serves as a national thought-leadership center on women issues, which advances the collective commitment to mentor women across the communication industries. Signature programming is accomplished through scholarly research, seminars and webinars, mentoring program, annual national symposium in Washington, DC, fellowships, and annual national conference which envisions the way for future generations of communicators, professionals, and scholars. This is accomplished by actively supporting female communicators in a didactic mentoring philosophy, which is focused on creating an educational forum for developing a leadership brand, entrepreneurialism, and technological innovation.

The Kopenhaver Center empowers both women professionals and academics in all the fields of communication, to develop visionaries and leaders who can make a difference in their communities and their profession. Established in 2013 by Dean Emeritus and Professor Dr. Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver, the center is a pioneering site for the advancement of issues that relate to our mission and brings together prominent and influential voices on the role of women in communication today.

We invite you to join us in supporting leadership opportunities for young women and to become our partner in advancing women in the field of communication.
