Join us for an evening with professional radio journalist Leoneda Inge, the Changing Economy Reporter at North Carolina Public Radio - WUNC 91.5FM. Leoneda will be speaking about her experiences in the field of journalism and, more specifically, what it means to be a woman in this field.
She has spent the past decade tracking job loss, gain and innovation in major North Carolina industries including food and agriculture, tobacco, furniture, textiles and biotechnology. Leoneda enjoys covering stories that link North Carolina to the global economy. Her work has been heard by listeners across the country on National Public Radio (NPR) and WBUR's "Here & Now."
When Leoneda is not reporting, she loves training future journalists. She has served as a mentor for NPR's Next Generation Radio project, and she taught at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee and Bennett College for Women in Greensboro, NC.
