We’ve heard from women all over the world who are looking for more support and guidance as they move through their careers. Through ONA’s Women’s Leadership Accelerator, we’ve connected women with other people who understand their unique challenges and can share practical advice on how to improve their work. Now, women who have been through the Accelerator will share their stories and lessons learned with you.

In this session, you’ll hear from women who lead in a range of journalism roles, from leading teams in local newsrooms to launching new products. You’ll get insights on how they charted their own courses and tips for troubleshooting challenges in the workplace.

The Women’s Leadership Accelerator is an intensive program that supercharges the leadership and management skills of women who are pushing digital innovation. If you are a woman passionate about leading change in the newsroom, we highly encourage you to attend this session.

This session is designed for:

  • Anyone interested in leadership roles in newsrooms
  • Women managing people or projects
  • Women looking to connect with other inspiring women
  • Newsroom leaders dedicated to empowering their female colleagues directly and indirectly
