Meg Myers Morgan and Negotiating Your Life

Dr. Meg Myers Morgan has built a successful career as both an author and professor. In this talk she shares advice for women to negotiate their lives based on her experience as both a mother and a graduate school mentor.

Meg is a woman with too little time on her hands to write as though she’s got nothing but time. Even still, she’s written a humorous blog since 2010, and she has been published in print and syndicated online. An Oklahoma native, Meg received her undergraduate degree in English and Creative Writing from Drury University, and her MPA and PhD from the University of Oklahoma. Meg lives in Tulsa with her husband and two daughters. She works as an assistant professor of political science and writes feverishly in the minuscule time after her children go to bed and before her nightcap.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
