ONA LA is excited to welcome ONA’s 2017 Women’s Leadership Accelerator (WLA) to Los Angeles – we’ll have free food, beverage and lots of mingling! WLA is a weeklong forum aimed squarely at developing strong leadership skills for women working in digital journalism. We’ll be celebrating the success of the attendees in completing the course with a mixer!
Meet the talented women who are a part of the program, connect with speakers and mentors and say hi to the ONA staff who are in town. Invite your friends and colleagues to join us for this special event – all are welcome to this mixer, both men and women in the journalism community in Los Angeles. Learn more about the program and the 2017 class.
We’ll be meeting at Industrious Los Angeles in downtown, a few blocks from the Staples Center and Pershing Square. When you arrive, head on up to the fifth floor. Check out our venue sponsor’s stunning offices, some of which are designed by Laurel & Wolf, and take in the view. Enjoy complimentary appetizers and coffee/tea/soda courtesy of our friends at Good Heart Catering.

Parking There is an underground ramp at 600 Wilshire Blvd. It is $6 valet in the evenings after 5 p.m. Take the parking ramp elevator directly to floor five for Industrious.
Metro The 7th Street/Metro Center stop is two blocks away at Hope and 7th.
The building’s main door locks at 7 p.m., so if you are entering from the street please look for a volunteer who is monitoring the building’s front door. If you are coming from the parking elevator, the elevator will be unlocked to the fifth floor so you can come right up.
