Pat Mitchell Presents Becoming a Dangerous Woman, in Conversation with Catalina Escobar
Wednesday, November 20 @ 7:00 pm
300 NE 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33132 United States
Raised in a small town in Georgia with no money or connections, Pat Mitchell went on to become a consummate media game-changer. She was the first woman president of PBS, CNN Productions, and The Paley Center for Media, as well as an award-winning producer of documentaries and TV series. She is the cofounder and curator of TEDWomen and the Connected Women Leaders Initiative, chair of Sundance Institute and Co-Chair of The Women’s Media Center, trustee of the Skoll Foundation, and advisor to Participant Media. In Becoming a Dangerous Woman (Seal Press), she shares her own path to power, from a childhood spent on a cotton farm in the South to her unprecedented rise in media and global affairs. Alongside revelatory interviews with other dangerous women, Mitchell takes us on a lively journey, sharing with readers intimate anecdotes about navigating the power paradigms of Washington D.C. and Hollywood, traveling to war zones with Eve Ensler and Glenn Close, pressing Fidel Castro into making a historic admission about the Cold War, and matching wits with Ted Turner and Robert Redford.
Mitchell will be in conversation with Catalina Escobar, recognized social entrepreneur. Granted the National Merit Order Award by Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos in 2011, she joined the Fortune/U.S.State Department Global Women´s Mentoring Partnership and became a CNN Hero in 2012.
