Meet Environmental Media Expert Betsy Rosenberg
July 26, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
WEN in Conversation with Green Media Trailblazer Betsy Rosenberg
Join the Women’s Environmental Network (WEN) for networking and a conversation with Betsy Rosenberg, an award-winning national broadcast journalist and environmental media expert.
Betsy Rosenberg is a keen observer of how mainstream news outlets cover climate change and other ecological issues. She has dedicated her career to being a communications conduit between eco-innovators and the general public. With 20 years of radio news experience as a popular talk show host, Betsy has earned distinction as a world class, solutions-oriented visionary.
Environmental communicators and leaders will gain insights, inspiration and ideas from our esteemed speaker. Takeaways:
- Gain insights on how we can make media coverage of environmental issues more mainstream.
- In this new political climate, learn how environmental communications and reporting have changed.
- Learn how you can work with the news media and build relationships with journalists.
- Discover narrative strategies that connect with hearts and minds.
- In a time when people are getting news and information from sources that reinforce their own world views (including “alternative facts”), explore how we can reach new audiences outside of our bubble.
During the Q&A you will have the opportunity to explore ideas for ways to strengthen the way you tell stories and influence hearts and minds. Learn more about Betsy is this month’s Spotlight.
