Open Book/Open Mind: “Closing The Gender Gap” Joanne Lipman in Conversation with Edward Felsenthal

Joanne Lipman, former Chief Content Officer of Gannett, and Editor-in-Chief of USA TODAY and the USA TODAY NETWORK, will discuss her new book That’s What She Said: What Men Need To Know (and Women Need To Tell Them) About Working Together with TIME Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, Edward Felsenthal On Sunday, February 25, 2018,

The national dialogue around sexual harassment is a watershed moment for our time. Now comes the next step: men and women working together to solve the problem. If this moment has taught us one thing, it is that this isn’t a female problem. It’s also a male problem. That’s What She Said is a clarion call by veteran journalist Joanne Lipman for how men can join the conversation to close the gender gap – including steps they can take right now, alongside women, to move toward a solution. Lipman goes beyond the current focus on sexual harassment to examine the broader culture.

Ms. Lipman was until December, 2017 the Chief Content Officer of Gannett, and Editor-in-Chief of USA TODAY and the USA TODAY NETWORK. She began her career as a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, ultimately rising to deputy managing editor – the first woman to attain that post—and supervising coverage that won three Pulitzer Prizes. She was founding editor-in-chief of Conde Nast Portfolio magazine and, which won Loeb and National Magazine Awards.

Joining her in conversation will be Edward Felsenthal, the editor-in-chief of TIME Magazine. Previously, Edward was a former editor at The Wall Street Journal, serving as the founding editor of Personal Journal, where he guided the paper to two Pulitzer Prizes, and was one of the founding editors of The Daily Beast. Edward is a resident of Montclair.
