The Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University’s School of Communication, Architecture and the Arts invites you to the center’s Fifth Annual Conference, “Women in Communication: Pathways to Success.” This national one-day conference on April 2, 2020, will bring together outstanding women professionals from around the country to discuss and analyze a broad range of topics focused on the theme of “Pathways to Success” – How can women navigate different pathways to success?
Findings from a national survey conducted by the Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University reveal that women in the communication professions are three times less likely than men in the same professions to hold a top management position; men dominated the highest salary brackets; women are more likely than men to feel they’ve been bypassed for a better, higher position because of their gender and/or because of their race or ethnicity, and that women had worked fewer years than men in their professional fields, partly because they are more likely than men to have experienced a career interruption.
Conference participants will explore “Pathways to Success” in the fields of advertising, broadcasting, digital media, newspapers, public relations and magazines. This open conversation brings together women from across the country to talk about issues that are important in today’s world.
