On 7 June 2017, more than 200 leading editors and journalists from around the world will hear from innovative women at the top of the news game at the inaugural Women In News Summit.

“Breaking through”, is the theme of the Summit, which is being held in association with the World News Media Congress and World Editors Forum, taking place in Durban from 7-9 June. It is a component of WAN-IFRA’s sector-leading Women in News initiative, which seeks to increase women’s leadership and voices in the news.

Media executives who are redefining the media landscape – on their terms, speakers and mentors speaking the inaugural Women in News Summit in Durban include:

  • Helje Solberg, CEO/Editor, VGTV, Norway
  • Monica Almeida, Bureau Chief, El Universo, Equador
  • Fatemah Farag, Founder and Director, Welad Elbalad Media Services LTD, Egypt, Director, WIN MENA
