Speaker Series: Journalism and Polarization

The UWC mission emphasizes unity – which is increasingly challenging given the degree to which our societies are polarized. As members of the UWC community, we are called to discern the causes of polarization as well as to explore possible solutions.

All alumni, students, staff, and friends of the school are invited to join us for a conversation with two UWC-USA alumni who have deep experience in journalism and who will share their understanding of how journalism contributes to and can reduce polarization.


  • Alice Speri ’04 currently works for The Intercept as a foreign policy and national security reporter.
  • Ramón Cuauhtémoc Taylor ’06 is a producer for the NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.
  • Aurora Martínez ’19 recently graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in journalism.
