Apply now to attend the The Op-Ed Project's "Writing to Change the World" which will be held on February 16, February 26, March 5 and March 12 from 4-6 pm.
The OpEd Project’s mission is to change who writes history. They partner with universities, foundations, companies, nonprofits and communities to diversify knowledge and accelerate solutions to society’s greatest challenges. In "Writing to Change the World" participants explore how credibility works and how to establish it; how to present ideas quickly and powerfully under pressure; when and why people change their minds; the difference between being “right” and being effective; and strategies for greater impact, including how to escape a pigeonhole, how to preach beyond the choir, and the power in seeing your ideas as part of a bigger picture. Participants leave with an outline of an op-ed in hand, and access to OpEd Project journalist mentors for individual follow up.
This program is free, but an application is required. This opportunity is open to all staff, faculty, and Cleveland community members aged 21 and over. Applications are open and being accepted until January 31st.
This program is sponsored by Flora Stone Mather Center for Women and co-sponsored by the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence, Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, and Schubert Center for Child Studies.
