WMC Congratulates Stacey Tisdale for Winning NABJ National Community Service Award
| July 8, 2011
The Women's Media Center congratulates financial journalist Stacey Tisdale for winning the National Association of Black Journalists 2011 National Community Service Award.
A financial expert who has reported on business and financial issues for more than 15 years, Tisdale is being honored for what began as a six-year study of financial behavior. She found that social messages from advertisers and the media, stereotypes about race and gender, as well as early role modeling are among the primary determinants of financial habits. This methodology serves as the basis for Winning Play$ - a financial education program for high school students. The program won the U.S. Department of Education's Excellence in Economic Education Award in 2010.
The Women's Media Center applauds the National Association of Black Journalists for recognizing Tisdale's outstanding work. Tisdale will be honored on Thursday, August 4, 2011 at NABJ's Annual Convention and Career Fair, which will take place August 3-7 in Philadelphia, PA.
