−Advertising Week: Realizing the Full Potential of Audience Targeting @ Target Media Network Stage @ PlayStation12:45 pm – 1:45 pm
In this session…Big data has been transforming the media industry for some time, but perhaps in no more significant way than in the growing application of advanced audience data. Media buyers and sellers are moving beyond traditional demographics toward using more precise behavioral-, interest- and lifestyle-based segmentation as currency.
This session will explore this growing trend and the lucrative opportunities that exist to effectively reach consumers with advertising and content that they find relevant and engaging.

−Ellen Pao: Resetting Silicon Valley @ Marines' Memorial Theatre6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Ellen Pao, Kapor Capital Investment Partner; Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at the Kapor Center for Social Impact; co-founder of Project Include and Author of Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change
In 2012, Ellen Pao sent shockwaves throughout Silicon Valley when she sued her employer, powerhouse venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers, for workplace discrimination against women and other minority groups. While she lost her case in 2015, her fight for change was just beginning. From her work as a founder of Project Include to fighting negative culture as interim CEO of Reddit, Pao dedicates time and energy to making sure others don’t have the same experiences she did, and she recently published her first book, Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting Change.
Pao’s bravery in calling out systemic harassment and other abusive practices within the tech community has inspired others–in the wake of the most recent stories around discrimination and harassment, many mention Pao by name in their accounts. Today, women, people of color, and allies in the workplace and beyond are standing up for themselves and their colleagues. They’re pushing back against toxic workplace cultures in Silicon Valley and beyond, galvanizing widespread coverage advocating for increased accountability of individuals and companies: they’re resetting Silicon Valley.
Join Ellen Pao and Laura Weidman Powers, co-founder and CEO of Code2040, for an empowering discussion about overcoming the struggle to be heard and raising your voice to create lasting change.

−March for Black Women @ National Mall10:00 am – 10:00 pm
“Black women’s issues are racial justice issues. Black lived-experiences related to gender, sexuality, gender identity are–racial– justice–issues. On September 30, 2017, Black women and comrades will unite and lock arms and march unapologetically at the center of the scheduled MARCH FOR RACIAL JUSTICE as our very own MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN.
Black Womens Blueprint need you to show up for Black women.
Our March within a March is not only a mass mobilization centered on Black women, but a reminder to every single one of us that so long as Black women are killed by the cops; so long as Black women are taken or go missing; so long as we are raped by friends or by strangers or by nationally renown predators — there can be NO JUSTICE.
8 Black trans women are murdered in the first four months of 2017 =#NOJUSTICE
60 women report rape by Cosby including 22 Black women. Cosby admits he drugged and “had sex” with them but there’s a hung jury = #NOJUSTICE
June 2017 Pregnant Charleena Lyles shot and killed by Seattle police = #NOJUSTICE
May 2017, 27 year old Jonie Block was killed by police = #NOJUSTICE
April 2017, Glenda Taylor stabbed and strangled by a probation officer, the officer was also her fiance = #NOJUSTICE
In March 2017, 38 year old Sherida Davis was shot and killed by police, the officer was also her husband = #NOJUSTICE
In March 2017, 21 year old pregnant Alteria Woods was shot and killed by police = #NOJUSTICE
In February 2017, 30 year old Morgan Rankins was shot and killed by police = #NOJUSTICE
In March 2017, 10 of our children went missing in less than 2-weeks in the I-495 corridor that stretches between Baltimore and D.C., most of them Black girls = #NOJUSTICE
As of 2014, 64,000 Black women were MISSING in the United States = #NOJUSTICE
Thousands of Black girls under 18 are pimped out by men from our own communities = #NOJUSTICE
40% of young people trafficked in the U.S. are Black, most of them girls = #NOJUSTICE
Black women are 13% of U.S. women, but make up about half of domestic violence homicide victims = #NOJUSTICE
Black women are beaten by their partners at a rate of 35% higher than white women = #NOJUSTICE
In April 2017, Karen Smith is shot and killed by her husband and hundreds more such cases go unnoticed = #NOJUSTICE
In California, 81% of girls in the juvenile justice system suffered sexual abuse before being arrested = #NOJUSTICE
40% of girls in the juvenile justice system have been raped or sodomized in their lifetime = #NOJUSTICE
The media doesn’t seem to care = #NOJUSTICE
Black women don’t seem to matter = #NOJUSTICE
Over this past Juneteenth weekend, all of us at Black Women’s Blueprint have meditated on the many violent systems failures that our sisters are forced to endure and which too many of us do not survive.
This is their collective response. BWB can and must refuse to be subsumed within a broader movement that does not see us as fully human. BWB will resist! See you at the March on September 30th.

−True Crime Stories: Relationships and Responsibilities @ Tribeca Film Center7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
There is no doubt that the “true crime” documentary genre is thriving and that such film and television projects are enjoying unprecedented buzz. Studies show that women are their biggest audience, and broadcasters are taking notice. We will explore this phenomenon through an in-depth conversation with creators who make crime stories that matter.
By the nature of their work, non-fiction storytellers are always considering how to present and represent their subjects through the creative process. But how is that further complicated in the “true crime” space, when the stakes might literally be life or death? Where do they draw the line between journalism and entertainment? A panel of filmmakers and network executives will discuss the brass tacks of telling these stories and examine their ethical boundaries and sense of responsibility in developing relationships with individuals whose lives or livelihoods are on the line.

−Covering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University9:00 am – 5:00 pm
In this free workshop at Vanderbilt University, journalists will look beyond politics toward issues that are likely to affect nearly every community. You will be equipped with knowledge and awareness to cover some of the most pressing issues that are likely to emerge in 2018. Click here to apply today.
The Affordable Health Care Act: Identify what is not working and what could be done to fix those problems.
Cyber Security: How susceptible and prepared are local, county and state governments to cyber attacks? What about the threat to the nation’s electrical grid and pipelines? What do journalists need to know about issues of private cyber security? How do cyber crimes affect business and finance?
Trade Agreements: It appears likely that there will be some changes to NAFTA. What would those changes mean to business, consumers and manufacturers big and small? What needs fixing? Who would benefit and who would be harmed?
Local and State Governments Taking on Global and National Issues:Maybe it is a sign that Washington is in gridlock and somebody has to do something. But local governments are increasingly at the center of what used to be federal business. From climate agreements to environmental regulations and immigration, local governments are where the action is. The Canadian prime minister met with governors about trade agreements and legislators lobbied governors on the Affordable Health Care Act changes.
The Local Effects of Climate Change: EPA says flooding is becoming more frequent along the U.S. coastline as sea level rises. Nearly every site measured has experienced an increase in coastal flooding since the 1950s. Farmers face changing growing seasons and power companies are logging more demand to cool hot buildings and less demand to warm normally cold ones. Pollen seasons are getting longer and the spread of health worries including Lyme disease and West Nile virus are linked to warming temperatures.
Vanderbilt University is excited to partner with Poynter on this project. Participants will attend sessions at the university’s First Amendment Center. In addition, many lectures will be led by Vanderbilt faculty that are world-class researchers and experts on the topics covered by this workshop.+9:00 amCovering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University
