Zoe Gorman, a graduate of political science from Yale University joins the Center for Media & Peace Initiatives as writer and contributor.
Ms. Gorman has a stellar background of writing and reporting for different news organizations and will bring to CMPI an outstanding perspective on conflict and peace journalism. She has just returned from Mali where she served in the Peace Corps and witnessed the conflict in that West African country.
Among the news organizations where Ms. Gorman worked include The Washington Spectator, Yale Daily News, and Forbes.com.
Named a Yale Journalism Scholar, Ms. Gorman was one of the 30 students a year to achieve status through courses and published work. As part of her academic thesis on Mali conflict, Gorman interviewed government, military and UN officials in Mali about political nuances and future stability of the crisis-prone West African country.
Gorman traveled four times as a U.S. representative for the international peace program that brings people together to build multicultural tolerance and discuss transnational issues.
Gorman has also interned in the office of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York where she helped with administrative duties, legislative research and tours of the Capitol and currently serve as Communications officer and researcher for a global justice NGO based in Brussels.
In a statement, CMPI President, Dr. Uchenna Ekwo expressed the hope that with Gorman’s addition, the center would expand its conversation on peace journalism.
