Gloria L. Joseph is a communicator, a professional broadcaster and an active listener who has taught English Composition at college level and enjoys the art of moderating panels in her capacity as a volunteer.
She grew up outside Chicago in Indiana, attended public school, and got her BA at Indiana University with a double major in journalism and environmental sciences. Joseph spent years in a variety of television shows as an on-camera anchor, reporter and talk show host, later returning to print media, where she became News Editor for the oldest business daily in America, The Journal of Commerce. Later in life, she returned to the classroom to get an MFA in creative writing at The New School in New York City.
Volunteerism was always prized within her family, with parents who supported hands-on community work. Once married with a single child, Joseph returned to those roots and began serving in various organizations, often in communications and later in leadership. She enjoys supporting Nobel Women’s Initiative, the Presidential Leadership Council of Search for Common Ground, and Women Moving Millions.
