Women In Action with Margaret Bernstein

  • WKYC

We invite you to join us as we host our fourth Women in Action Series event with Margaret Bernstein, ‎‎Director of Advocacy and Community Initiatives at WKYC-TV.

A Los Angeles native, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Southern California. She worked as a reporter and editor at The Plain Dealer, Ohio’s largest daily newspaper, from 1989 to 2013. A recipient of many journalism honors, Margaret won the Ohio Society of Professional Journalists’ first-place award for minority issues reporting in 2011 and 2012, for co-writing a series of profiles about the 11 Imperial Avenue victims and their families.

She is an award-winning volunteer as well. Margaret was named the National Big Sister of the Year in 2000 for her work with two Cleveland girls, Cora and Ernestine, through the local Big Brother Big Sister agency.  She was  also a longtime volunteer with the Urban Journalism Workshop, an annual program for high school students put on by local black journalists. 

Margaret Bernstein is also the writer of The Bond, a memoir on fatherlessness by The Three Doctors, Sampson Davis, Rameck Hunt, and George Jenkins. That experience led her to write her most recent book, a storybook titled “All In A Dad’s Day,” designed to tighten the bond between fathers and their young children. 

The Women in Action Series is geared toward building awareness of the leadership goals of women and aims to inspire them personal and professionally. Bernstein will offer an intimate, up close and personal conversation about her own personal and professional development.
