Please join Simmons University for the 2023 Gwen Ifill Forum, our annual signature event in honor of Simmons alumna Gwen Ifill and her legacy as a ground-breaking Black woman journalist.
This year’s event features legendary White House Correspondent April Ryan, who will be honored with the Gwen Ifill Next Generation Award–presented to an individual who embodies Gwen Ifill’s commitment to professional excellence, mentoring, and the public good. The event will also include a book signing of Ryan’s recently published Black Women Will Save the World: An Anthem.
April Ryan will be interviewed by NBC News’ Chief Education Correspondent Rehema Ellis. Her reports appear across all of NBC News and MSNBC’s platforms, including NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt, TODAY, NBCNews.com, and NBC News NOW. Ellis has reported on a wide-range of stories, including the attacks on the World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, the death of Michael Jackson, and the Haiti earthquake.
This event is free and open to the public. Masks are strongly encouraged. For the book signing portion of the event, masks are required.
