The E.W. Scripps School of Journalism will host a “90 Minutes Series” conversation titled, “Women in the Workplace,” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 28, in Schoonover 145.

During the talk, student moderator Alyssa Murtagh will interview five women about the topic. The talk is free and open to the public.

The role of women in the workplace remains a topic of concern. Ohio University was reminded of that two years ago with issues inside campus media. Gender inequality isn’t only a journalism issue; it’s an issue that affects every industry – from sports to Fortune 500 companies.

To ignore the issue is to say it doesn’t matter. It does matter; it matters even more in today’s world.

Five women will share their thoughts on how they have fit into the workplace – the good of it, the bad and the ugly.

The talk is part of the “90 Minutes” series, which was developed last academic year to create discussions on politics, racism, sexism and global topics. The series exposed students to people who have faced adversity or who have seen bigotry and discrimination happen for others, but have stepped forward to address those social and cultural wrongs.

Additional sponsors of the “90 Minutes” series include: Black Student Communication Caucus; Associated Press Sports Editors; Housing and Residence Life; Office of Student Affairs; E.W. Scripps School of Journalism; Scripps College Diversity Committee; Office for Diversity and Inclusion; Honors Tutorial College; Center for Law, Justice and Culture; Institute for Applied and Professional Ethics, Political Science Department and the Office of the President.
