The Sacred Heart Greenwich Alumnae Media Network hosted an alumnae panel, "Media for Social Change Panel" on June 16 to explore issues of the media, race and social change in the spirit of Goal Three, “a social awareness which impels to action.” More than 180 alumnae, students, parents, faculty and staff attended the virtual webinar.
Media for Social Change - Alumnae Panel
Join us on Tuesday, June 16, at 7pm EST for a virtual panel focusing on media for social change.
Broadcast Journalism is not merely an elective at our school. It is the first step of a lifelong journey for many students. Our alumnae go on to study at top media and filmmaking programs around the country such as USC, Syracuse University, NYU, Northwestern, and Elon. One out of every two broadcast alumnae pursue careers in communications, media, or filmmaking.
Our Alumnae Media Network group is a resource for Sacred Heart Greenwich alumnae who work in the media, television, film, social media, and communications fields. We connect graduates of Sacred Heart Greenwich who work in the media with current students and share opportunities for networking events, internships, mentorships, and job listings.
1. Provide resources and networking opportunities for alumnae who work in the media field.
2. Create an alumnae network to help educate our current students about majoring in media in college and working in the field in the future.
