Wonder Women, Unite! Navigating the Digital Workplace

Get tips on managing up, down or just managing yourself, from fellow women digital news leaders. This session will explore tips for women in the newsroom with a candid discussion on routine challenges they face, with a special focus on challenges faced by women leaders.
