        THE AGENDA: 

        7:30am - MAKING THE TRANSITION FROM EMPLOYEE TO ENTREPRENEUR with KELLY HOEY

        How ​can you prepare for career opportunity? Learn how​ ​a nice girl from Victoria, British Columbia, land​ed​ in New York City as an angel investor, board member​, ​​trusted advisor to hot tech startup​s​​ (after a c​orporate detour through Toronto as a bankruptcy attorney)​ by developing her networks, ​cultivating ​diverse professional relationships,​ building​ a Yes Me Fund and ​finally, taking that ​courageous jump in her career.

        11:30am – THE TRUTH BEHIND ‘IT’S ALL ABOUT WHO YOU KNOW’ with MARILYN NAGEL

        Networking is one of the cardinal rules in entrepreneurship. It’s a practiced and perfected skill that can turn a business card into a potential employee, customer, or investor. During this lunch session, Marilyn Nagel will share her insights on why it’s all about who you know and who knows you. Having spent her career overseeing diversity and inclusion opportunities at a Fortune 100 company, and most recently leading the largest community of executive women who have risen to the top of their fields, Marilyn is passionate about accelerating women’s network and their careers.

      Dallas Startup Weekend: Women’s Edition May 29th-31st — Inspiring More Women Leaders in Founding Startup Teams

      We are thrilled to be hosting Dallas’ first Startup Weekend Women’s Edition, as part of the Up Global Editions Month presented by Blackstone Charitable Foundation.Our goal is to encourage and inspire more female leaders in startup teams and to connect more women to the vast number of resources and mentors available in our startup community. That’s why we want you to be of this weekend and join some of the most talented and entrepreneurial-minded women across the North Texas region.

      Are men allowed to attend? YES, MEN ARE INVITED! However, there are a limited number of tickets available to men and we do encourage men to find another female participant to bring along.

      What is Startup Weekend? Startup Weekend is a global grassroots movement of active and empowered entrepreneurs who are learning the basics of founding startups and launching successful ventures. It is the largest community of passionate entrepreneurs with over 1800 past events in 120 countries around the world in 2014. The non-profit organization is headquartered in Seattle, Washington but Startup Weekend organizers and facilitators can be found in over 200 cities around the world. From Mongolia to South Africa to London to Brazil, people around the globe are coming together for weekend long workshops to pitch ideas, form teams, and start companies.

      All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback. Whether entrepreneurs found companies, find a cofounder, meet someone new, or learn a skill far outside their usual 9-to-5, everyone is guaranteed to leave the event better prepared to navigate the chaotic but fun world of startups. If you want to put yourself in the shoes of an entrepreneur, register now for the best weekend of your life!

    2. Rosie the Riveter & Other Industry Pioneers: The importance of supporting women in non-traditional professional fields including STEM careers and the public sector @ In Good Company
      6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      The good news: Women outperform men in nearly every aspect of primary, secondary, and postsecondary education.

      The bad news: Women’s professional experiences are fraught with a disproportionate number of challenges and disadvantage that results in lower participation and achievement across the board, particularly in sectors considered not traditional fields of employment for women.

      The results of these challenges are easy to see, for example:

      • Women represent a mere 24% of the STEM workforce, jobs that on average pay 33% more than others
      • Only 17.5% of the House of Representatives and 20% of the Senate are women
      • Teen girls are still less interested in entrepreneurial careers than their male counterparts

      Join us for an engaging conversation on WHY THIS MATTERS and WHAT YOU CAN DO today and everyday to help create change.

      This is NOT a panel for only women in tech or women aspiring to run a tech startup. This is a panel for anyone who cares about women’s advancement, wants to better understand why representation across ALL industries is important, and how to best support those aspiring, non-traditional enterprising women among us.

      The panelists include:

      CV Harquail. Co-Founder of Feminists at Work and Authentic Organizations. Professor. Organizational Consultant. Change Agent.

      Julie DesJardins. Feminist Scholar. Professor. Author of The Madame Curie Complex: The Hidden History of Women in Science.

      Liz Azbug. Lawyer. Professor. Founder of Bella Azbug Leadership Institute, which helps girls become social, political and economic leaders.

       judy blume

      In her highly-anticipated new novel, Judy Blume, the number oneNew York Times bestselling author of Summer Sisters and of young adult classics such as Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, creates a richly textured and moving story of three generations of families, friends and strangers, whose lives are profoundly changed by unexpected events.

      In 1987, Miri Ammerman returns to her hometown of Elizabeth, New Jersey, to attend a commemoration of the worst year of her life. Thirty-five years earlier, when Miri was fifteen, and in love for the first time, a succession of airplanes fell from the sky, leaving a community reeling. Against this backdrop of actual events that Blume experienced in the early 1950s, when airline travel was new and exciting and everyone dreamed of going somewhere, she paints a vivid portrait of a particular time and place—Nat King Cole singing “Unforgettable,” Elizabeth Taylor haircuts, young (and not-so-young) love, explosive friendships, A-bomb hysteria, rumors of Communist threat. And a young journalist who makes his name reporting tragedy. Through it all, one generation reminds another that life goes on.

      In the Unlikely Event is vintage Judy Blume, with all the hallmarks of Judy Blume’s unparalleled storytelling, and full of memorable characters who cope with loss, remember the good times, and finally, wonder at the joy that keeps them going.

      Early reviewers have already weighed in: “Like many family stories, this one is not without its life changing secrets and surprises. There is no surprise that the book is smoothly written, and its story compelling. The setting—the early 1950s—is especially well realized through period references and incidents.” —Booklist (starred review) and “In Blume’s latest adult novel….young and old alike must learn to come to terms with technological disaster and social change. Her novel is characteristically accessible, frequently charming, and always deeply human.” —Publishers Weekly

      The Complete Reporter’s Digital Dirty Dozen

      Location: TBA

      Every year is a chore to keep up with new programs and applications designed to make your journalism life simpler. The bad news is that’s not going to stop. The good news is our trainers have sorted, tested and have given their seal of approval to these 12 applications that will make you the complete digital reporter. From mobile reporting to data mining to creating mind maps for your stories, they’re simple, free and just waiting for you to take them to the next step in your newsroom.

      Narrative Storytelling: Dump the Inverted Pyramid, No Matter Your Medium of Choice 

      Location: TBA

      Step out of the inverted pyramid, just-the-facts model that drives so much daily reporting and into the world of narrative storytelling. You’ll learn what narrative storytelling is and how to do it well. You’ll discover how to choose a story that’s ripe for a narrative approach, and how to get it done on deadline. The goal of this session is to provide strategies and resources to help journalists promote narrative storytelling within their individual newsrooms — changing the way you and your colleagues think about, report and tell stories. Journalists working in all media — broadcast, online, print and everything in between — will benefit from thinking about crafting compelling stories.

      Trainer: Tom Hallman Jr. (@thallmanjr), reporter, The Oregonian, and Pulitzer winner in feature writing

      Data Visualization For The Web (Made Easy and Non-Scary)

      Location: TBA

      Have you ever written or produced a story that could be improved with a chart or a graphic? Wanted to visualize data but didn’t know how or thought it was just for the “data geeks” in your newsroom? Come learn to identify the right type of visualization for a dataset you might come across in your daily journalism work, use popular web tools to create embeddable web graphics; and publish them online. After this session, you’ll understand web basics and be able to make visually compelling charts to accompany your stories on any platform.

      Trainers: Hilary Fung (@hil_fung), visual and data journalist, Huffington Post; Frank Bi (@frankiebi), reporter, Forbes magazine


      12:30-1:15 p.m.: Lunch (provided)

      Smarter Video News Packages with Smartphones

      Location: TBA

      Move over, backpack journalism. Make way for back-pocket journalism. During this interactive workshop, you’ll learn how to produce a video news package using your smartphone. Participants will be exposed to basic techniques on gathering quality sound bites and shooting compelling B-roll and “selfie stand-ups.” You will learn to edit those assets into a short video package that can easily and immediately be shared online — beating journos using big rigs. If you have a tripod and mount adapter for your smartphone, bring it. Ditto if you have MiFi or another mobile WiFi device.

      NOTE: Participants should download the free iPhone app Videolicious prior to the workshop. (It also works on iPads.) Android users should download YouTube Capture and follow along. Bring a charged smartphone, ear buds and loads of attitude and imagination.

      Trainer: Cindy E. Rodríguez (@cindyerodriguez), senior journalist in residence, Emerson College

      It’s A Hard-Knock Life (But Doesn’t Have To Be): Building Your Freelance Business

      Location: TBA

      Whether you write a little “on the side,” earn your daily bread as an independent journalist, or are considering making the switch from full-time staff to freelance, this workshop will teach you proven strategies to promote your work. Learn how to brand yourself as a subject matter specialist, make your pitches sing, and keep track of the business side of your venture. In the first half of this two-hour session, you’ll hear tips from a writer and editor who has made a living as an independent journalist in the competitive New York City market. In the second half, we will break up into groups to practice our “elevator pitches.” Come prepared to describe what makes your brand of independent journalism stand out.

      Trainer: J. Alex Tarquinio (@alextarquinio), senior digital editor, Time Inc., and longtime New York City freelancer


      3:45-5 p.m.: Closing General Session

      Social Media Deep Dive: Tools and Tips for All Journalists

      Location: TBA

      The focus of this engaging and interactive presentation will be on getting the best use out of your time online (and on your phones), how to build more fans and followers and how to do all this in a smart, strategic, sustainable manner. Get a little social media help from your friends and colleagues in a collaborative, informal, anything goes review and critique session. Join Sree Sreenivasan and your fellow JournCamp participants for a no-judgment, help-you-better-yourself social media profile critique. How are you using Twitter as a journalistic tool? What does your LinkedIn profile say about you? Can you better use Facebook to engage and interact with your audience? Come ready to give feedback and, if you’re willing, bring up your social media accounts on the “big screen” to share and get critiqued.

      – How to deepen your connection with your audience via social media
      – New tools you must absolutely know and use
      – Building your personal brand
      – How to find, on deadline, specific types of people you need for work
      – How to get the “right” followers, fans, and connections
      – Metrics: why you need to understand them and how you can do just that
      – Sustainable social media — how to keep from drowning in information and make time to participate efficiently

      Trainer: Sree Sreenivasan (@sree), Chief Digital Officer, The Met, and longtime Columbia University journalism professor and social media trainer


      5:15-6 p.m.: Reception

      Location: TBA

The tour kicks off in Philly on April 10.
