The 19th News: Gender, Politics, Policy — and Making Newsrooms More Equitable

Join Emily Ramshaw, the president and CEO of The 19th News, to learn about this Austin-based news start-up's approach to leveling the playing field for women and LGBTQ+ people in American media, and making newsrooms that work for marginalized people.

About our speaker:

Emily Ramshaw is the president and CEO of The 19th, the nation’s first independent nonprofit newsroom at the intersection of gender, politics and policy. The 19th aims to elevate the voices of women and LGBTQ+ people — particularly those left at the margins of American media — with free-to-consume and free-to-republish daily journalism, newsletters and live events.

Prior to The 19th, Ramshaw was editor-in-chief of The Texas Tribune, an award-winning local news startup and the largest statehouse news operation in the nation. She is on the board of the Pulitzer Prize, where she is serving a nine-year term. In 2020, Ramshaw was named to Fortune’s “40 Under 40” list.

Ramshaw started her career at The Dallas Morning News, where she broke national stories about sexual abuse inside Texas’ youth lock-ups, reported from inside a West Texas polygamist compound, and uncovered “fight clubs” at state institutions for people with disabilities.

A native of Washington, D.C., Ramshaw graduated from Northwestern University in 2003 with dual degrees in journalism and American history. She lives in Austin with her filmmaker husband, their spunky and spectacular 8-year-old daughter, and a one-eyed wonder dog.
