Gain confidence, clout and connections as a leader in the ever-evolving media industry.
The Poynter Leadership Academy for Women in Media ([link removed]) has transformed the careers of more than 550 people since 2015. During a week often described as overflowing with “Poynter magic,” each participant learns to manage teams more effectively, hone and communicate their strategic vision and steer their organizations toward success. But perhaps more importantly, graduates join a global community of support.
This camaraderie is established during the program through honest, candid and often vulnerable conversations, hands-on activities, formal and informal social activities, and shared experiences. Each participant’s circle expands after the program as alumni from different classes network, connect online and in person, and even mentor each other.
Is this your year? Apply by Friday, Sept. 8, for the 2024 program.

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 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.
