Jacqueline Langley, assistant professor of communication at HPU, is Hawai‘i’s sole representative at the Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry Ladies Organisation (FLO) Mission in Delhi and Jaipur, India, March 9-16, 2007.

Langley is one of 26 women professionals invited to participate in the 10-day mission, including representatives from Revlon, Hewlett Packard, and Smith Barney. The delegation will attend seminars and participate in discussions and traditional practices, including yoga, Goldsouk (therapy stones), and astrology. The group will visit historic and notable sites in the region, including Purani Dilli (Old Delhi), the Museum and Art Residency, the Taj Mahal, and the Temple of Gold.
Langley, who specializes in broadcast journalism and mass media, joined HPU in 1997 and developed the curriculum for the College of Communication visual communication concentration, which will become the multimedia degree program in spring 2008.

Under Langley’s leadership, HPU students have won both national and regional awards for their student-produced videos as well as recognition by the Smithsonian Institute.

Prior to her career at HPU, Langley held teaching positions at the University of Hawai‘i and Leeward Community College. She previously worked for WWOR-TV and WCBS-TV, both in New York, as well as Hawai‘i’s KHVH radio, and the Worcester Telegram and Gazette in Massachusetts. Langley earned her undergraduate degree from Clark University in Massachusetts and her M.S. in journalism from Columbia University in New York.

The FLO encourages women to become self-reliant, utilize their skills, and earn professional recognition. Nearly 25 years after its founding, FLO has more than a 1,000 members throughout India, promoting entrepreneurship, professional excellence, and female empowerment.
