The Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media



Now in its fifth year, the Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media is more successful and in-demand than ever. In our last survey, two-thirds of participants reported receiving a promotion or raise within the first year since their academy experience. 

To reach more women leaders in journalism, Poynter will host three academies in 2019:

Applications for the 2019 academies will open Nov. 1, 2018. Sign up here to receive updates on our 2019 program.

This transformative program focuses on the skills and knowledge needed to rise to the highest levels of digital media leadership. Sessions cover how to develop effective management styles, grow business savvy, navigate newsroom and digital culture, master negotiation tactics, build collaborative teams and coach critical thinking.

This program is structured to encourage open, candid discussion and mentoring, and participants will walk away with not only strong leadership skills, but a built-in support system of peers. All women will benefit from one-on-one coaching, analyze feedback from colleagues, and create a personal leadership strategy.

Poynter’s Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media was borne out of a two-year partnership with ONA. If you have questions about the two programs, please see our FAQ.
