“It’s more than transformative. It is a new way of looking at yourself as a leader and as a person,” Raj Mukhopadhyay said on the last day ([link removed]) of Poynter’s Leadership Academy for Women in Media in February 2020 ([link removed]) .
At the time, she was executive editor of C&EN BrandLab at American Chemical Society.
A year later, she became vice president of the Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Respect at American Chemical Society.
“I can’t emphasize enough how the leadership academy made me more fearless about being an advocate for others. It’s how I came to the attention of the CEO for the role,” Mukhopadhyay said later. She has since been promoted again to senior vice president.
We’ve heard from Poynter alumni who say the academy cements their place as future leaders in their organization. Like Mukhopadhyay’s CEO, senior executives start recognizing our alumni’s efforts and achievements, seek their strategic input, and often give promotions and pay raises.

Program details
We will host three leadership academies in 2024, each open to 30 participants: March 18-22; May 20-24; and Sept. 23-27. There is one application (which includes a letter of recommendation) to seat all three cohorts. Each program will take place in person at Poynter’s waterfront campus in sunny St. Petersburg, Florida.
Ideal candidates
Our program is designed for those who directly manage people and are within their first five years of formal leadership experience. We welcome all English-speaking women, including cis and trans women, as well as nonbinary and gender nonconforming journalists who are comfortable in a space that centers the experiences of women in media.
Instructor info
Kate Cox ([link removed]) led the academy in 2023 and will return as program director in 2024. Guest instructors and keynote speakers for 2024 will be announced closer to the seminar dates.
Read a Q&A ([link removed]) with Cox about her stewardship of the program and see her tips for putting together a strong application.
