Series Line-Up

January 28: Marcia Nelson speaking on Mobilizing Others to Act

Overseeing 27,000 employees to manage a $55-billion organization requires strong leadership to ensure the highest quality in public services. Drawing from her varied career in public service and leadership of public sector and community organizations, Marcia Nelson will share the Alberta Public Service’s approach to engaging employees within the organization, and how the public service coordinates action with public and private organizations, stakeholders and citizens to best serve Albertans.


February 11: Bradley Clark speaking on Leading Through Change

Bradley Clark is the former Executive Director of the Edmonton Drug Treatment Court. This lecture will discuss leading through change by highlighting key lessons learned from Brad’s personal experiences over the past decade specifically while leading a period of incredible change within the Community Corrections Branch of Alberta Correctional Services.


March 4: Jana Pruden | The Misery Beat: The Ethics of Reporting on Crime and Human Suffering

From the front page to the home page, stories of crime and tragedy have dominated news coverage since the earliest days of journalism. Today, crime stories continue to be among the most-watched and read pieces produced by many news organizations, while true crime documentary series and podcasts have further expanded the reach and popularity of what was traditionally known as “The Misery Beat.”

But what obligation do reporters and news organizations have to the individuals and communities who are affected by crime and tragedy, and to the broader public? Why are we drawn to these sad and tragic stories, and is there a better way to tell and share them? Should we even be telling them at all?

In this lecture, veteran crime reporter Jana Pruden goes beyond the police tape to examine the ethics around media reporting of crime, disaster, and tragedy, and consider both the meaning and significance of these difficult true stories.

Please consider bringing a non-perishable food item to the next Lougheed College Lecture.
