What could we accomplish if we invested in broadcasting the missing voices - those of women, minority groups, and the underprivileged? What about YOUR voice and the voice of the organization you champion?

This highly interactive day-long seminar will challenge you to think more carefully and more expansively about your knowledge and experience, and why it matters. We will explore the source of credibility; the patterns and elements of powerful evidence-based argument; the difference between being "right” and being effective; how to preach beyond the choir; and how think bigger—so that we can have greater influence and value in the world.  You will emerge with a powerful argument for an idea or cause you believe in, and a network of high-level mentors. This seminar is about empowering you to find your voice and make a case for the ideas and causes you believe in—whether in print, online, on TV, before your board of directors, to potential funders or investors, or on the steps of congress. And it is about the collective difference we can all make by doing so.

    This seminar is not a standard media training. It's based on experiential
    learning around thought leadership – high stakes scenarios, interactive
    exercises and thought experiments, Socratic dialogue, all designed to make
    people think far more carefully and far more expansively about what they
    know and why it matters – and how to use it. The OpEd Project's programs
    are about influence and contribution. They are unorthodox, intense, very
    challenging and very fun. The OpEd Project has been featured in the NYT, by Katie Couric, even Harvard Business Review.
    Beyond the full-day training, participants have one year of ongoing access
    to 75+ Mentor-Editors--high-level media mentors from across the country,
    including 15 Pulitzer Prize winners, who read and provide feedback on
    participants' op-eds or arguments.
