The Third Women In News Summit
The initial fallout from #metoo sparked change in the way women are treated in media companies. It also raised questions of why so few are questioned/quoted for their expertise. This year's summit, which promises to be as inspiring as previous years, features new initiatives and builds on cases presented in 2018.
The Women In News Summit is being held in association with the World News Media Congress and World Editors Forum, taking place in Glasgow, United Kingdom from 1-3 June. It is a component of WAN-IFRA’s sector-leading Women in News initiative, which seeks to increase women’s leadership and voices in the news.
