Where Do Women Stand Event

The next “conversation” among three of America’s most influential and fascinating women: Katharine Weymouth, Michelle Rhee, and Katherine Bradley tomorrow at Washington Water Front.


Katharine Weymouth

The Washington Post
Washington Post Media

Granddaughter of family legend Katharine Graham, Katharine Weymouth became publisher of the Washington Post and CEO of Washington Post Media (which includes washingtonpost.com) in early 2008, after serving in a variety of legal and marketing jobs since 1996. The Post has a M-F circulation of 715,000 and 2,600 employees. She is a product of Harvard, Oxford, and Stanford Law School, and has also been a lawyer at Williams & Connolly. She is widely seen as the next generation of leadership that will help take her storied institution of traditional journalism into the digital age.

Michelle Rhee
District of Columbia Public Schools

Since Time Magazine put Michelle Rhee on its cover and labeled her the most revolutionary force in American education today, she has been a national symbol of the secondary school reform movement aimed at improving the quality of teachers. Appointed by Mayor Fenty in 2007, Michelle leads a school district serving 47,000 students in 123 schools. She began her commitment to education in a Baltimore classroom as a Teach for America instructor in 1992. She then founded The New Teacher Project (TNTP) in 1997, a leading organization in understanding and developing innovative solutions to the challenges of new teacher hiring.

Katherine Brittain Bradley
CityBridge Foundation

Katherine co-founded CityBridge in 1994 with her husband, entrepreneur and magazine publisher David G. Bradley. CityBridge focuses on building sustained stewardship for educational results in DC, with the ultimate goal of seeing the nation’s capital become the first high-performing urban school district in the country. In 2006, CityBridge launched a 5-year initiative to improve quality and build capacity in early childhood and elementary education in the District of Columbia. Since 2007, CityBridge has expanded its education work into the K-12 DC Public School space.

Stacey Jones
Senior Executive

As Accenture’s Sr. Director, Corporate Marketing, Stacey drives a wide range of global corporate marketing & communications initiatives, including corporate social responsibility, inclusion and diversity, leadership and sustainability. She began her career working as a journalist in both Columbus, Ohio, and Chicago, and went on to work at Burson-Marsteller and Fleishman-Hillard, where she consulted with a range of Fortune 100 corporate clients. Prior to joining Accenture, she developed and managed Aetna’s regional public relations functions.
