As the snow came down this morning in NYC, 19 eager participants gathered bright and early at The OpEd Project HQ for a public seminar. The room was full of experts, thought leaders and some familiar OEP faces (special shout out to Qanta Ahmed!). The seminar was led by the stellar Katherine Lanpher, who had the whole room buzzing with ideas by noon!

As the day progressed, it was clear that the creative juices were flowing and solid opinions were beginning to form. Near the end, Katie Orenstein (OEP founder) stopped in to share her words of wisdom.
