Five SJMC undergraduate students have been named Research Assistants with the Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Students began in October working on research to identify common themes and trends discussed by the center’s monthly guest speakers from across the country. These talks of some of the top women in communication, including those in advertising, public relations, and journalism, are archived on the Center’s Leadership Webinar Series Page.
Students are working alongside Dr. Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver and Dr. Robert Gutsche, Jr., to analyze themes collected from the recordings and to present them in an industry report to be released in Spring 2016. The findings will help women and men in leadership roles throughout fields of communication to encourage and support continued innovation through increased diversity.
