Di Nonno
(CAS ’82)

Madeline Di Nonno’s Path to Changing Gender Representation in Media

Madeline Di Nonno (CAS’82) has ascended to high-ranking jobs throughout her career. From ABC to Universal Studios Home Entertainment, she has been a powerful figure in the media and entertainment industries— but decided to leave those behind to focus on uplifting women’s voices in storytelling.

For the past fourteen years as President and CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, a nonprofit research organization that advocates for equal gender representation in media, she partners with entertainment and media decision makers to help them become changemakers from utilizing the ground-breaking research at the Institute, or through consulting on films and TV shows centered around gender, diversity and inclusion.

(CAS ’07)

The Untold Stories of Female Herpetologists

When Sinlan Poo (CAS’07) met fellow herpetologists Umilaela Arifin and Itzue Wendolin Caviedes Solis at the World Congress of Herpetology in Dunedin, New Zealand, in 2020, the three women talked about their experiences breaking into herpetology — the study of amphibians and reptiles. During their early careers, there were very few women and people of color in the field (in 2010, less than 30 percent of herpetologists were women, according to a survey by the U.S. Census Bureau) and they recognized how helpful it would have been to have had role models to look up to.

“Rather than talking about it, we wanted to do something, especially something that we think would have been helpful for us early on,” said Poo, who majored in biology with a specialization in ecology and conservation biology, and is now the curator of research at the Memphis Zoo and an adjunct assistant professor at Arkansas State University.

Henry Kleiber
(CAS ’91)

From Poetry to Podcasting

Shannon Henry Kleiber (CAS’91) is a senior producer and interviewer for To the Best of Our Knowledge (TTBOOK), a national public radio show from Wisconsin Public Radio and PRX that explores big ideas through interviews with philosophers, writers, artists, scientists, and historians.

But she traces her storytelling roots back to her days at BU.

As a student, Kleiber was an English major, studying writing and poetry under Professors Robert Pinsky, Christopher Ricks, Geoffrey Hill, and Rosanna Warren. She says studying under each of these professors influenced her storytelling, changing how she saw the world and laying a foundation for her career path as a writer and journalist.

“I’ve always loved questions, research, talking to people, discovering surprising things, and writing,” Kleiber says. “I’m interested in culture and people and how we all connect to each other.”
