CBS News Broadcaster shares career advice

Social/Networking

Mark Grant is a five-time Emmy Award-winning director, and 24-year veteran of CBS Sports. He covers NFL and college football, college basketball, and golf. He has covered sports in ten countries and in 48 states. Prior to CBS, he worked with ESPN for 11 years, where he covered nearly all the major events covered by the network. In addition to his Emmy Awards he has won three Awards for Cable Excellence, the highest honor for TV production in the cable television industry.

In 2020, Grant directed the Los Angeles Chargers-Denver Broncos game on CBS alongside producer Kimani Morales, marking the first time that an NFL telecast was led by both an African-American producer and director. A 43-year veteran of the television industry, Mark got his start in local cable television, where he covered city council and school board meetings, high school sports, parades, and other events of community interest.

Feminist Killjoys at Work

Lecture/Readings | Diversity, equity, and Inclusion

In this lecture I explore what we come to know about institutions from our efforts to transform them. I will draw especially on two chapters “The Feminist Killjoy as Philosopher” and “The Feminist Killjoy as Activist,” from my forthcoming The Feminist Killjoy Handbook. To be a feminist killjoy (or another kind of institutional killjoy) means not only confronting institutional problems, but challenging how institutions use our efforts to change them as evidence they have changed. The lecture explores how being feminist killjoys at work means recognising that the figure of the feminist killjoy can be appropriated and neutralised. Being feminist killjoys at work also requires finding other institutional killjoys, because the more we come up against, the more we need more.

Denim Day Celebration

Special Event

In 1992, a sexual assault conviction was overturned in Rome, Italy by the Italian High Court because the victim had been wearing tight jeans. The court argued that because her jeans were tight she would have had to assist him in removing them, therefore giving him consent. Enraged by the verdict, the women in the Italian Parliament protested by wearing jeans on the steps of the Supreme Court. Over the years wearing jeans on this anniversary has become an international symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual violence. Join in solidarity by wearing jeans on Wednesday, April 26th. Stop by our Denim Day barbecue for photo booth opportunities and to build community.
