Journalist and speaker Noor Tagouri and alumnus Kevin Clancy, Comm ’15, will speak on their experiences navigating through the journalism industry on Thursday, Jan. 26, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the jPad (Johnston Hall 104).
Tagouri’s work revolves around cultural barriers, from sexism to Islamaphobia and more. Her storytelling and public speaking have drawn profiles in Marie Claire, The Washington Post and elsewhere. She has also launched #TheNoorEffect, a clothing line created to empower women and combat sex trafficking. She currently works as a reporter at Newsy.com’s Washington, D.C. bureau.
Clancy, a video journalist working out of Newsy.com’s Washington, D.C. bureau, has covered the campaign trail, political protests and international stories, including a three-part series on the Zika virus in Central America. He has freelanced for organizations such as Vice, Viceland, Netflix, The Weather Channel and CNN.
Lunch will be provided at the event. Reservations can be made by emailing Julie Rosene.
