The OpEd Project's mission is to increase the range of voices and quality of ideas we hear in the world.


A starting goal is to increase the number of women thought leaders in key commentary forums to a tipping point.  We envision a world where the best ideas - regardless of where they come from - will have a chance to be heard, and to shape society and the world. 

Working with top universities, foundations, think tanks, nonprofits, corporations and community organizations, we scout and train under-represented experts to take thought leadership positions in their fields;  we connect them with our national network of high-level media mentors; and we vet and channel the best new experts and ideas directly to media gatekeepers who need them, across all platforms.  The OpEd Project is an Echoing Green Project.
