Members’ Salon

Historically, the salon was a place where people would gather to have intellectual, and often entertaining, discussions in 17th and 18th century France. Notable thinkers would gather at the salon to discuss everything from current news to literature to philosophy. They would exchange ideas with their compatriots in an effort to improve their understanding through dialectic. Even Martha Washington (wife of George) held weekly gatherings where everyone from members of Congress to ordinary citizens were invited to the executive mansion for discussions. Conduct in the salon was expected to be exemplary of polite society and intellectualism.

2ndLook believes that we can all benefit by returning to the traditions of dialogue found in the salons.

Welcome, distinguished members.

Biographical Info:

<b>Founder, Editor-in-Chief </b><br><br>

Stacia Wilson is a writer and entrepreneur. She grew up traveling between the US and Japan as the child of Christian missionaries, and has been to over 20 countries as a digital nomad. To empower others to travel, she wrote the ebook <i>How to Travel Without Time or Money. </i><br><br>
Stacia’s background as a partner dance instructor and world traveler has given her a unique perspective on human connection, language, and culture. She has a wide-ranging skillset that allowed her to freelance remotely before becoming an entrepreneur. She has managed teams while working as editor-in-chief of multiple commercial blogs, such as Wandering Westie, a lifestyle brand, and SwayD, a dance shoe brand.<br><br>
She has a BS in Anthropology from the University of La Verne (<i>magna cum laude</i>) and is a member of the Lambda Alpha National Anthropology Honor Society. As part of receiving her degree, she conducted multiple hands-on ethnographic studies. These included on-the-ground networking, interviews, and documentation of cultural events. Her senior thesis was an ethnography which involved conducting and analyzing research in Europe, Asia, and across the United States.<br><br>
Stacia has completed personal development and leadership programs with Landmark Worldwide, Powerteam International, and Mindvalley. Her last entrepreneurial endeavor before Covid was an online dance training program (in Japanese) for women in Japan. Most recently, she was a volunteer for Unity2020, a movement designed to encourage solutions-oriented perspectives and uncover options beyond the two-party political system that dominates American media and politics.<br><br>
Stacia founded 2ndLook News from a desire to reimagine news—from a system of misaligned incentives producing skewed information which results in division and chaos, to one that facilitates sound decision-making and common understanding.
