Internews CEO Jeanne Bourgault will be speaking, with Christi Hegranes of Global Press, on a panel titled Whose Story Is It? – The Power of Voice at Women Funded 2019 in San Francisco.
Only 10% of all news stories globally focus on women and girls and roughly 80% of experts interviewed are men. When women are the storytellers, we all have access to more accurate news. In the face of digital security challenges and increasingly authoritarian media systems, ground-breaking organizations are building an inclusive media eco-system, training women journalists on the ground from Puerto Rico to Mongolia to Afghanistan and beyond.
The panel takes place at 8:30AM on Friday, September 13.
At Women Funded 2019, join 400 change makers from around the world to share, learn, and collaborate for gender equity. Get inspired as we look to the current state of the world, and the great need for women’s and girls’ leadership in all arenas. Hear from those on the front lines of social change, including: climate justice, women’s health, criminal justice reform, ending child marriage, re-shaping philanthropy, and more.
