Join us at the 2016 Exceptional Women in Publishing Awards! The wine reception and awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 27, at the PG&E Auditorium in San Francisco.
This year, EWIP honors two extraordinary women: Mother Jones CEO Monika Bauerlein and Editor-in-Chief Clara Jeffery are smart, fearless leaders whose work has helped transform the nonprofit news organization into a key player in global media. During their tenure, Mother Jones’ coverage of everything from politics and climate change to education and food has won awards and recognition—and more importantly, has made a difference.
Bauerlein and Jeffery join a long list of outstanding women who have been honored by EWIP, starting with feminist icon Gloria Steinem in 1999 to National Geographic Editorial Director Susan Goldberg in 2015. In keeping with EWIP’s mission to educate, empower and support women in publishing, our awardees have achieved prominence in their careers, made extraordinary contributions to the field, and demonstrated success and leadership in exceptional ways.
Mingle with friends old and new, nosh and sip complimentary hors d’oeuvres and wine, and celebrate our women in publishing!
2016 Exceptional Women in Publishing Wine Reception & Awards Ceremony
Never before in the history of journalism has the power of the individual been so amplified. Technology has revolutionized reporting and distribution. And yet, women continue to be significantly underrepresented in bylines, articles and positions of clout in media.
Exceptional Women in Publishing is thrilled to host a conversation with two leaders who have been working for decades to help women and girls around the world use and share their voices.
Jeanne Bourgault is the CEO of Internews, a global nonprofit that has been training media professionals, online activists, and citizen journalists in some of the most challenging communities on earth for more than three decades. Internews’ strategic initiative Women’s Voices, Powering Change seeks to ensure women’s safe access to information, content production, and leadership. That is familiar territory to award-winning documentarian Amie Williams, co-founder and executive director of Global Girl Media. GGM empowers young women, ages 14-22, to find their voice and tell the stories that matter because they matter to girls.
Join us for engaging conversation, networking, and drinks as Bourgault and Williams share the challenge of achieving gender parity, celebrate women leading change, and offer solutions: from teaching data-driven reporting to immersive storytelling.
