Leadership Development in the Media


While there is plenty of bad leadership around in all industries, it is safe to say that leadership skills and strategies in the media profession are particularly underdeveloped. One of the consequences is a clear gender disparity in leadership roles in the industry. Join Alexandra Borchardt, former director of leadership programmes at the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, and Eliza Anyangwe, managing editor of The Correspondent, for a discussion on leadership development in the news industry, highlighting best practices and gender-related issues. This discussion was organized in cooperation with the Heinrich Boll Stiftung, e.V.
