Here are the facts:
**Key commentary forums are 85% penned by men.
**Wikipedia contributors are 87% male.
**Pundits on Sunday TV talk shows are 84% male (and 90% white).

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?

If you're ready to contribute to the world conversation, please consider attending this amazing seminar on Sunday, July 24th in SF with The Op-Ed Project.

This is much more than an op-ed writing workshop -- it's about finding your voice, understanding its value to others and feeling empowered to make a difference. If you want to expand your role as a thought leader in 2011, you should be there.

Participants also have access to OpEd's national mentoring program connecting them to high level media gatekeepers at newspapers, TV, radio, and more - the success rate, whether it's local outlets, HuffPo or the New York Times, is truly impressive.

Sign up by Friday (July 1) and take advantage of our super early bird registration rate plus this 5% off coupon code: OEPBF.

Finally, consider asking your employer to sponsor you - you'll come back armed with an arsenal of communication tools to advance your organization's mission.

Let's change the conversation!
