The OpEd Project
Katie Orenstein is the founder and CEO of the OpEd Project. The OpEd Project’s mission is to change who writes history. Our programs accelerate the ideas and public impact of underrepresented thinkers of all kinds, including women. We partner with universities, foundations and nonprofits to diversify knowledge and accelerate solutions to society’s greatest challenges. New initiatives focus on climate crisis, aging and longevity, immigration and public health. Want to join us? We also run daylong “Write to Change the World” workshops in major cities across the nation. Workshops are based on time-tested models of transformational learning, and we welcome people of all identities, positions and affiliations, and regardless of means. Participants also gain access to our network of journalist mentors, for individual follow-up. Info: www.theopedproject.org/seminars
