Women and communities of color are underserved and underrepresented in digital news, as with every other major institution and field of work. What they need and demand is nothing more than basic fairness, nothing less than transformative opportunity: A voice, a chance, a seat at the table.

Join four women powerhouses of media for a frank discussion of the hurdles they have encountered, the networks that helped them thrive, and the joys of lifting others along the way.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms interested in incubating female and communities of color leadership
  • Journalists struggling with voicelessness and lack of opportunity
  • Anyone who believes in diversity, equality and fairness in the workplace

Featuring
