Keyholder 2019

What is Keyholder?

And, it’s a night to commit to tackling challenges that still lie ahead, together. We fill the Ohio Theatre with 2,500 of us ready to learn more, connect more, and do more.

Who we are as individuals, our perspectives, our daily work, our social groups, and our lived experiences empower us to make change happen. Keyholder 2019 is all about connecting our experiences to our purpose and understanding how to start—in our own way—creating social change. On May 22, Aly Raisman, Brittany Packnett, and Piper Perabo will take the Keyholder stage to share where they started. They’ll inspire us to unlock our own place in the movement and to move boldly with our power for the sake of women and girls.

Former NBC4 Anchor and NAWBO Member Mikaela Hunt Builds Community via New Channels

For eight years Mikaela Hunt woke up with Columbus news viewers as one of four co-anchors on NBC4 Today. During those years, Hunt built a relationship with viewers as a part of their daily morning routines — almost as if they knew her. But after 17 years in TV journalism, an unexpected — and at one point devastating — change came her way.

There were a lot of questions about why she was no longer on the show, where she went, and exactly what happened. Years later, from time to time, Hunt will get a message on Facebook from someone saying, “I’m so glad I found you!” or “I didn’t know where you went. What happened?” Others told Hunt they called the station, left voicemails, and were even given the news director’s phone number, but never got a callback.
