It's been more than 40 years since the first women entered mainstream
sports media as reporters and editors. Since then, women have gone on
to hold some of the most influential positions in the field. However,
the numbers of women in sports media continue to hover under 10
percent in traditional newsrooms. What does the present, and future,
look like for women?

The Battle over Climate Change
Tom Clynes, Knight-Wallace alumnus spoke last month on The Battle over Climate Change at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy. Anthrax scares, nuisance lawsuits and political attacks and are all in a day's work for some climate scientists. In this lecture, Clynes brought the audience behind the scenes of his deeply reported feature story for Popular Science, and shared some of the more entertaining (and at times absurd) moments with prominent players in the climate-science-denial community - including Senator James Inhofe, author of "The Greatest Hoax".
Tom Clynes is a contributing editor for Popular Science and 2010 Knight-Wallace Fellow. During his fellowship he studied the prediction and prevention of global pandemics. He also writes and photographs for National Geographic, Men's Journal, GQ, and other publications.
Commentary provided by Andrew Hoffman, Holcim (US), Inc. Professor in Sustainable Enterprise, Professor of Natural Resources and Environment, SNRE and Professor of Management and Organizations, Stephen M Ross School of Business. This event was open to the public.
