Internews Data Journalism Advisor Eva Constantaras was chosen, along with 27 other women from five countries, to participate in a week-long Leadership Academy at Poynter, focused on the skills and knowledge needed to rise to the highest levels of digital media leadership.
Eva is a data and investigative journalist specializing in growing data journalism in developing countries. Her projects have helped kick start data journalism across Latin America, Asia and East Africa on topics ranging from displacement and kidnapping to extractive industries and elections.
In a series of sessions at the 2017 Leadership Academy for Women in Digital Media, participants will learn how to develop effective management styles, grow business savvy, navigate newsroom and digital culture, master negotiation tactics, build collaborative teams and coach critical thinking.
The training, which is tuition-free, is sponsored by The McClatchy Foundation and supported by PR Newswire and Craig Newmark, founder of craigslist and craigconnects.
