Monday, March 21 at 6 p.m. — RUTLAND — Vermont Public Radio journalist Jane Lindholm will be presenting on women and their place in the media at College of St. Joseph on March 21.
Lindholm’s presentation will focus on her experience as a professional woman in Vermont, including the challenges she’s faced and how she’s been able to use occasions when she’s been underestimated as a reporter. It will also include a question and answer session.
Lindholm hosts the award-winning program Vermont Edition on Vermont Public Radio. She joined VPR in 2007 and transitioned Vermont Edition from a weekly broadcast to the daily news magazine it is today.
Female presence in the newsroom has been stagnant for nearly 20 years, according to the Women’s Media Center. The total number of female staffers continues to hover at 36 percent, a figure that has remained largely unchanged since 1999. However, the number of women in radio news has jumped 8 percent in recent years, slowly narrowing one of the widest gender gaps in the news industry.
The program will take place on March 21 at 6 p.m. in Tuttle Theater, located on the CSJ campus. It is free and open to the public.
CSJ is located on Clement Road, Rutland.
