Speaking Engagements

Becky Sarwate is an accomplished speaker who makes regular appearances at Northeastern Illinois University, discussing the importance of mentors and educational opportunities, while teaching liberal arts students to turn their degrees into satisfying long-term careers.

At Illinois Woman’s Press Association, National Federation of Press Women, Chicago Writers Association and Editorial Freelancers Association events, Becky specializes in addressing and inspiring communicators of any gender and career stage, building artistic communities within the oft-siloed creative world, and advancing the concepts of branding and marketing in professional work.

For the About Women story series, podcast and blog, she offers her perspective on various women’s issues: surviving at-risk childhood, chronic disease, sociocultural prejudices and breaking through the proverbial glass ceiling.

In 2017, Becky spoke at the AAUW Wheaton/Glen-Ellyn’s Fall Conference regarding the ongoing impact of the Women’s March and #MeToo movements. This conversation unites the common goals of AAUW and Illinois Woman’s Press Association (where Becky serves as Immediate Past President & Digital Marketing Chair) in creating equal professional, social and economic opportunities for American women.

As a longtime political columnist, Becky is a vocal proponent for equal rights, and a strong voice for progressive politics.
