W&L Hosts ‘Women Watching Wall Street’ A panel discussion will feature six leading business journalists who cover big financial and economic stories.

Washington and Lee University will host six leading business journalists who cover big financial and economic stories for a public panel discussion titled “Women Watching Wall Street.” The talk, which is free and open to the public, is March 5 at 5 p.m. in Stackhouse Theater.

The speakers include four W&L alumnae: Katrina Lewis ’19 and Polina Noskova ’17, both at Bloomberg News, Kinsey Grant ’17, at Morning Brew and Leslie Yevak ’17 from CNBC.

They’ll be joined by Constance Ford, a former reporter and Wall Street Journal editor who is now a journalism professor at the University of Maryland, and Tracy Jan of The Washington Post.

“It’s a great time to have such a terrific group of financial journalists visit with our students because the U.S. economy and financial markets play a big role in the upcoming presidential election,” said Alecia Swasy, Reynolds Professor of Business Journalism at W&L.

The panel is part of the ongoing Reynolds Distinguished Journalists series and is sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and the W&L Journalism and Mass Communications Department.
