2020 Application: Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Media
2020 ACADEMIES: FEBRUARY 23-28 | APRIL 19-24 | OCTOBER 4-9
ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA
Poynter's Leadership Academy for Women in Media is back for its sixth year. This highly competitive and transformative program focuses on the skills and knowledge needed to rise to the highest levels of digital media leadership. Sessions will cover how to develop effective management styles, handle difficult conversations, manage burnout, master negotiation tactics and find newsroom allies.
We will host three women’s academies in 2020, in Winter, Spring and Fall, each open to 30 participants. These programs are structured to encourage open, candid discussion and mentoring. Participants will walk away with strong leadership skills, structured feedback from their colleagues, individualized career plans and a built-in support system of peers.
We will use one application form to seat all three classes. Required application materials include work experience, a letter of recommendation, and an example of a digital project. Please have your previous work history, an example of a digital project you've led, a short bio, and your recommendation letter ready when you fill out this form. You will also be asked to provide a link to a photo of yourself — we'll use photos of accepted participants in announcements about the program. The application will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.
The deadline for applications is 11:59 p.m. EST on Saturday, November 30, 2019. For more information about the program, please see
