Executive Women Leaders Salon

ONA is hosting a three-part conversation series designed to create a connecting space for women in executive digital journalism leadership. At the Executive Women Leaders Salon, selected attendees will network and develop skills around cultivating organizational resilience, find creative ways to support the professional development and growth of their teams and work through their unique challenges and opportunities for development and success. 

Sessions in this series:

  • Building and leading innovative teams (April 25 on Zoom)
  • Navigating recruitment and onboarding to C-suite positions (June 15 on Zoom)
  • Cultivating organizational resilience (Aug. 23 at the 2023 Online News Association Conference in Philadelphia)

While all executive women leaders are welcome, ONA members can sign up for the series early and at a discounted rate. The cost of registration includes an ONA23 conference badge, which gives attendees access to the full range of exciting programming at ONA23. To learn more about this series, read the program FAQ, and sign up to receive an update when applications open at the end of March.
