Women’s Business Forum to Feature International Photojournalist

The Women’s Business Forum is pleased to announce Jamie Rose will be featured as keynote speaker for its 3rd annual event, taking place Thursday, May 19, at Trine University.

Jamie is an international photojournalist and educator based outside of Washington, D.C. For the past decade, Jamie’s work has graced the front pages of major international news and magazine publications and she has traveled to over five continents capturing stories with her camera. Her clients ranged from The New York Times to The Global Fund to Better Homes & Gardens to The Calvert Foundation. She has covered stories ranging from international conflicts in the West Bank to humanitarian crises in Africa to Presidential Inaugurations in Washington.

She has become a leader in her industry by helping to form a non-profit for women photojournalists and regularly speaks to professional student groups around the country on the importance of women in the media.

In 2008, Jamie transitioned her work from content creator to creative management. She became the Director of Workshops in charge of education programming for Momenta Group LLC. Her photographic work is now exclusively through Momenta’s Creative division. While still photographing for select clients, Jamie now teaches photographers all over the world how to better their images and their careers.

"I am so honored to be speaking to a room full of motivated and powerful women," said Rose. "Today's business culture is changing so fast that we need to become leaders and guides for each other to stay current and successful. This is truly an honor for me and I can't wait to see everyone in May!"
