Women in News

Women in News (WIN) aims to increase women’s leadership and voices in the news. It does so by equipping women journalists and editors with the skills, strategies, and support networks to take on greater leadership positions within their media. In parallel, WIN partners with media organizations to identify industry-led solutions to close the gender gap in their newsrooms, boardrooms and in the content they produce.

WIN is currently working with more than 80 media organizations from 12 countries throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, including Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe (WIN Africa) and Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Palestine (WIN MENA). Per year, a total of 50 mid-to-senior level editors or senior journalists from Sub-Saharan Africa, and 30 mid-to-senior level editors or senior journalists from MENA may apply to join Women in News to progress their newsroom management, leadership, and editorial skills.
