ONA, Poynter open applications for Digital Women’s Leadership Academy

Apply now for the tuition-free ONA-Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media, led by prominent women leaders in the startup, tech, media and academic fields. Faculty will include S. Mitra Kalita, current Executive Editor (at large) for Quartz and adjunct faculty at Poynter; Kelly McBride, Poynter’s Vice President of Academic Programs; Liz Heron, Facebook’s Manager of News Partnerships, and Olivia Ma, Senior Manager of Google’s News Lab.

Only 25 promising women leaders will be selected for the program, held April 12-17 at Poynter’s campus in St. Petersburg, Fla. This tuition-free seminar will help women gain and polish the skills and knowledge needed to rise to the highest levels of media leadership. The classes will be structured to encourage open, candid discussion and networking, and participants will walk away with not only strong skills, but a built-in support system for the future.

Because of the small size of this first class, the selection committee will give preference to applicants currently working in digital media who can demonstrate an aptitude for leadership through project leadership and references. The group will represent diversity across ethnicity, age, geography, technology platforms, organization size and skill sets.  Apply today.
