The 2013 PWA Conference is the place to network with others around campus, with our guests and keynote speakers, and to celebrate Unsung Heroines and PWA Legacy members. PWA strives to build a day packed with programs that will add value to your life and help you on your professional development path.
Keynote Speaker: Starshine Roshell
Starshine Roshell is an award-winning journalist and author whose work has appeared in dozens of publications from The Hollywood Reporter to the New York Post. Best known to local readers for her irreverent Independent column, she's been named Best Columnist by Santa Barbara readers for the past three years. Starshine has California Newspaper Publishers Awards for column writing and business reporting, and was a vocal advocate for journalistic ethics during the highly publicized 2006 throwdown between the reporters and publisher of the Santa Barbara News-Press. She has taught journalism at UCSB and Santa Barbara City College and currently works as a travel writer, advice columnist for The Week, and marketing writer for lynda.com. She has published two books of columns, Keep Your Skirt On and Wife on the Edge, with a third on the way this fall.
The PWA Conference will feature a keynote speaker, presenters, and panelists who are local professionals that have a lot to share with PWA members. Expect talks by successful people in business, marketing, health and wellness, and other industries to share their tools for personal and professional development.
Unsung Heroine Awards
The purpose of this award is to recognize special women who make a positive impact to the campus by going above and beyond in contributions to their job, co-workers, campus, or community. Unsung Heroines receive their awards at the annual conference. To nominate an Unsung Heroine, please fill out the online form by May 3, 2013.
