The Poynter Institute Women in Leadership Scholarship

Women In Media Leadership
Mitra Kalita

While the percentage of women in media careers has grown dramatically, journalism leadership positions are still held predominantly by men.

The gains that women have made in journalism leadership have stagnated. Poynter is committed to reigniting that progress. Through the Women in Leadership Scholarship, Poynter will provide women with the opportunity to advance their leadership roles and to grow the scope, influence and impact of women leaders in journalism and the media.

We encourage young women to take on the roles of leadership needed in the industry, as well as veterans, who need an expanded network of colleagues and mentors to achieve their leadership goals.

Please help women in the industry achieve their goals by supporting The Poynter Institute Women in Leadership Scholarship.
