PA Center for Women in Politics at Chatham University to host the New York Times White House Correspondent
Maggie Haberman is the New York Time’s Chief White House Correspondent, and she is the go-to reporter for coverage of the White House and the president.
The Pennsylvania Center for Women & Politics (PCWP) at Chatham University is bringing Maggie Haberman to Pittsburgh on Wednesday, April 3, 2019, for a free lecture.
From the PWCP website:
Please join the Pennsylvania Center for Women and Politics as we welcome renowned New York Times Chief White House Correspondent Maggie Haberman as our 2018 – 2019 Elsie Hillman Chair.
About Maggie Haberman: One of the most influential voices in national affairs journalism today, Maggie Haberman opens audiences’ eyes with a remarkably informed perspective on President Trump, based on their complex relationship and her history of covering him. She examines his influence on key issues affecting all Americans and his battles with the American Press.
I have attended some of the previous lectures hosted by the PCWP, and these free talks are some of the best-kept secrets in Pittsburgh. In April 2016, the Pennsylvania Center for Women & Politics brought in Donna Brazil and Mary Matlin as speakers. The discussion between Brazil & Matlin was some of the most interesting commentary on the primary elections. The PCWP is one of the many organizations in Pittsburgh that make it possible to hear world-class speakers for free.

Why is Maggie Haberman coming to Pittsburgh?
The Hillman Foundation established the Elsie Hillman Chair in Women & Politics in 1997. The Hillman Chair for 2018-2019 is Maggie Haberman.
FYI: An academic chair is a term used in higher education that dates back to the medieval church. Universities have donors endow a “chair” as a way to recruit some of the top scholars on the subject.
Each year, the Center for Women & Politics selects a different person for the Hillman Chair. Last year the Hillman Chair was U.S. Senator Doris Kearns Goodwin. You can see the list of previous Hillman Chairs here.
