Программа лидерства женщин

The Online News Association is looking for women who not only have an understanding of the digital journalism landscape but who are helping to advance it in innovative ways for its “2018 Women’s Leadership Accelerator Program.”

The Accelerator is designed for practitioners working in digital media, including freelancers, entrepreneurs and independent journalists, who are pushing innovation in digital media.

In addition to learning leadership skills and tools for navigating change, participants will focus on a challenge specific to their careers, whether an obstacle to overcome or an aspirational goal to achieve, either within their organizations or as an independent project.

The tuition-free program is open to 25 promising women leaders. Applicants should have leadership experience, which can mean managing people or projects, and be fully committed to further developing their skills.

What Does the Program Provides?

        A week of hands-on personal and professional work; candid discussions about leadership, work-life balance and problem-solving in the newsroom; deep dives on developing leadership and management skills; inspiring visits to digital media organizations; and one-on-one mentoring from some of the top women leaders in digital journalism, Feb. 25-March 2, 2018 at USC Annenberg.

        A year of check-ins and practical, targeted guidance and personal coaching on individual challenges.

        Registration, travel and accommodations for the Online News Association Conference in Austin, TX, Sept. 13-15, 2018.
