The Op-Ed Project—featured by The New York Times, Katie Couric and The San Francisco Chronicle—is an initiative to expand public debate, with an immediate focus on enlarging the pool of women experts who are accessing (and accessible to) the nation's key opinion forums – which are a gateway into public debate, a hub of thought leadership, and feed all other media – and are overwhelmingly dominated (85%) by male voices.

HOW TO WRITE TO CHANGE THE WORLD: The Op-Ed Project Seminar (open to the public, women only). In this seminar you will learn how to make a bold, fair, persuasive case for the ideas and causes you care about. You'll learn how to generate winning ideas, craft a powerful argument, use news hooks, address potential critics, pitch ideas, preach beyond the choir, think bigger and make a bigger impact on the world. This seminar is not just about writing op-eds, it's about empowering you to find your voice and make a difference. To register, go to www.theopedproject.org.
