Fostering leadership with women in media

What happens when you get 25 women who care passionately about digital media together to talk about leadership? Real issues come up. Here’s what the ONA-Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media is focusing on this week. ‪Follow #digitalwomenleaders‬ for takeaways.

Volunteer at ONA15, attend free

We’re looking for volunteers to work at ONA15, our annual conference for digital journalists and technologists. This year, we’ll be in L.A. Sept. 24-26. Our video and social teams are looking for volunteers to report on the conference and we’re looking for general volunteers to help us keep things running smoothly. Get involved.

Thanks for your ONA15 session ideas!

The Suggestion Box is now closed and the program team — a diverse volunteer group of professionals and students — will review each and every idea. Check out the 279 suggestions sent in by the ONA community to see the micro to macro ideas your digital journalism colleagues are most interested in.
