WO-Man Up Means Mentor Up For The New Agenda
The New Agenda’s 2011 Event At Rubin Museum Of Art On May 18 In New York City To Highlight Mentoring And Engagement In The World Of Social Media
04.27.2011– New York City—The New Agenda, an organization devoted to giving women a voice in the world, will host its annual event on May 18th in New York City at the Rubin Museum of Art. This year’s event and campaign message focus squarely of mentoring.
Since forming in 2008—when it held some of the most powerful figures in media and politics accountable for blatant sexist attacks—The New Agenda continues the important work of getting women into leadership and ending gender bias. Its latest initiative: “Mentor Up,” is a national campaign aimed at encouraging teenage girls, young women on campuses and corporate women to collectively participate in mentoring through on-campus engagement, social media and live events.
The May 18 event will be held at the Rubin Museum of Art. Tickets range from $75 to $250. Media are encouraged to attend. For more information, please email Diane Mantouvalos, press contact: email@example.com or New Agenda founder, Amy Siskind: firstname.lastname@example.org
