Media expert Zandt to speak at NU


Media technologist and social media specialist Deanna Zandt will speak on Northwestern University’s Evanston campus Wednesday evening in a presentation that is free and open to the public.

Her talk, “Sharing is Daring, Your Voice Making Change, Online and Off,” is part of the Northwestern Women’s Center’s yearlong Power and Privilege: A Call to Action Series.

She will discuss the impact people are making and the challenges they face by connecting and sharing information related to everything from campaigns to end violence and hate speech against women to movements demanding racial equity through social media.

Zandt is a leading expert on women and technology and has advised the White House on digital strategy and public engagement.

Her presentation will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 22, in the McCormick Tribune Auditorium, Norris University Center, 1999 Campus Drive.

She will also be delivering lunchtime presentations on Northwestern’s Chicago campus and at the Hilton Garden Inn Evanston for which reservations are required.

Information is available on Northwestern’s Women’s Center website.
