Logo LLK

The Lillian Lodge Kopenhaver Center for the Advancement of Women in Communication at Florida International University’s College of Communication, Architecture + The Arts would like to present to you the Third Annual Conference on April 5, 2018. 

It is a decades-long discussion that even now has reached no consensus or conclusion: Where are women in the ranks of communication professions? If they are not leading, where are they and what are they doing?

The day’s events will bring together industry professionals and scholars from around the country. Conference participants will explore the role of women in leadership positions in the fields of advertising, broadcasting, digital media, newspaper, public relations and magazines.
