Judy Cockerton, Encore Public Voices Fellow
Founder and Executive Director Judy Cockerton receives the Encore Public Voices Fellowship!
The OpEd Project is launching the Encore Public Voices Fellowship, and we congratulate Judy for being selected as a Public Voices Fellow.
The fellowship is a joint venture between Encore.org, an organization dedicated to engaging seniors as active, vital members of society who want to live meaningful, purpose-driven lives, and the prestigious Op Ed project, a journalist training program to increase the voices of underrepresented people in the media: women, minorities and elders. As an Encore Public Voices Fellow, Judy will add to her impressive toolkit and amplify her voice as a passionate spokesperson for the remarkable intergenerational community model that is Treehouse. Beginning in September, Judy will join the 19 other Fellows, to hone their skills and expand their thinking through one-on-one coaching, editing and ongoing online training.
