Do you want to learn to sharpen your digital skills to better navigate the online web of news, opinion, fact and spin we are inundated with every day? Editors and news outlets are being overwhelmed -- not just in politics, but in business, sports, and other coverage.

Join David Wallace, Boston University journalism instructor and former contributor to The New York Times and Reuters, for a program that will help you learn to streamline and assess news sources, manage social media and outsmart clickbait and spam. Take home a few tricks-of-the-trade, new web tools and steps that improve your local, global and subject-specific newsfeed – and avoid the Bowling Green massacre of misinformation.

 
 
Women for Women

Are you interested in joining a discussion that includes women at all stages of their careers? Whether you are just starting out, mid career, or heading into retirement; whether you work as a volunteer, are a full time parent, or work out of the home - talking with and mentoring each other has proven valuable for women.

Modeled after the Lean In Circle program, this new group will support each of you in all phases of your life and career. Contact Christine at christine0220@verizon.net for more information.
