Chief Historian/SVP, Corporate Outreach
A cable treasure, O’Connell incorporates her academic work with her role as AETN’s chief of corporate and educational outreach. We think she deserves a Pentagon citation for History’s “Take A Veteran to School” program, which brings veterans into schools to educate students.
Why Outreach is Important: “AETN is dedicated to great storytelling with the highest quality content. Part of that spirit of excellence is reflected in our lifelong commitment to corporate citizenship and the very best in educational outreach [this] extend[s] AETN’s pledge of authenticity and excellence on all platforms and in all arenas – touching lives internationally, nationally and on a grass-roots level. That’s why it’s important. This is not just a simple marketing exercise. This is who we are.”
