National Geographic’s Susan Goldberg headlines ATHENA WIN Annual Signature Celebration

Susan Goldberg, Editor and Chief of National Geographic Magazine and News, and Michigan State University alumni, will discuss her own experience in “shattering the glass ceiling” at the Annual Signature Celebration on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Country Club of Lansing, 2200 Moores River Dr. in Lansing.
Before assuming the role of Editor in Chief in 2014, Goldberg served as the company’s executive editor. She also worked as the executive editor for federal, state, and local coverage for Bloomberg News.

Goldberg is a Michigan native, and has a bachelor’s degree in journalism from MSU, where she currently funds the Susan Goldberg Scholarship for the university’s College of Communication Arts and Sciences’ School of Journalism.

“I look forward to my visit to my alma mater and to being surrounded by such influential leaders,” said Goldberg. “My heart belongs to MSU; it’s where I learned how to write and where I saw the first glimpse of what I could become.”

Introductory remarks will be made by Dr. June Pierce Youatt, MSU’s provost and executive vice president for academic affairs and the 2014 ATHENA recipient.
Founded in Lansing under the original principles of ATHENA International to support, develop and honor women leaders while inspiring and encouraging women to achieve their full potential, ATHENA WIN is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing educational and professional leadership opportunities for women in the Greater Lansing area.
