The Institute and the Association for Women Journalists-Chicago (AWJ-Chicago) joined in bringing four top Chicago women journalists together to discuss the results of a new study, “Where Women Stand: A Survey of Newsroom Staff in the Chicago Region.” The study, released by AWJ-Chicago and completed in partnership with Bradley University, was administered via online questionnaire and takes a hard look at Chicago-area women journalists' salaries, place in the newsroom, job satisfaction, and more. The discussion was moderated by Cheryl Corley (National Public Radio) and featured Bradley University professors, Dr. Gregory Pitts and Dr. Margaret Young, and panelists Sally Eisele (Chicago Public Radio), Hanke Gratteau (formerly, Chicago Tribune), Lynn Norment (Ebony magazine), and Linda Yu (ABC 7 News).
