A candid conversation with women leading change in digital journalism

The Online News Association invites you to join fellow digital media and technology leaders for a breakfast conversation exploring how women are leading change in the digital space and best practices on working across editorial and product to create innovative journalism projects.

Charo Henríquez, senior editor, digital transition strategy at The New York Times, will moderate and we’ll be welcomed by AP Executive Editor Sally Buzbee to kick off the day. You’ll have a chance to connect with other women, like you, who are forces for change in their newsrooms and offices, including some of the inspiring women in the Women’s Leadership Accelerator.
