The U.S Leadership Institute for Women Journalists is designed to provide mid- to upper-level female journalists working in print, broadcast or Internet media with critical career building skills and the opportunity to network with colleagues. During the three-day on-site component of the institute, veteran women news executives use role-playing and other practical exercises to demonstrate leadership styles and share strategies for managing people and change, negotiating salary, navigating politics, balancing work and home and much more. Institute participants will receive one-on-one (telephone and online) coaching on implementing personalized action plans developed during the on-site for the three months following the Institute.
Thanks to support from the McCormick Foundation, the International Women's Media Foundation (IWMF) is offering the U.S. Leadership Institute for Women Journalists at no cost this year. Additionally, $500 travel stipends are available for 10 minority participants. Instructions for applying for a travel stipend will be available upon submitting your application form.
