Cision partners with Women in Journalism for events programme

Networking, campaigning and training body Women in Journalism has partnered with Cision to deliver an events programme that supports female journalists as they grow their careers.

The programme will consist of monthly seminars and panels looking at issues shaping the industry – from nurturing diversity in the newsroom to the future of the media.

Upcoming speakers include The Sunday Times news editor Becky Barrow, Observer deputy news editor Lisa Bachelor and Kalpana Fitzpatrick, finance editor across all Hearst Magazines and consumer editor at Good Housekeeping.

“We are delighted to support Women in Journalism this year as it continues its valuable mission to support women as they grow their careers in media,” said Cheryl Douglas, head of media research (EMIA) and jobs at Cision. “We know the opportunities that events give people to learn, debate and network. So, it’s a pleasure to support this programme.”

Eleanor Mills, editorial director at The Sunday Times and WIJ chair, added: “Thanks to Cision, we can continue with this schedule of important, valuable engagements at a time when they are needed more than ever.

“It is an exciting moment not just for the media, but for feminism, with a new generation picking up the baton and a feeling of excitement, possibility and new battles to fight.”
