Women in Journalism Scotland
Thu 3 November 2016, 18:00 – 21:00 GMT
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP will launch Women in Journalism Scotland at a party on Thursday 3rd November, 6-9pm
We’d love you to come to our launch party. We want Women in Journalism Scotland to be a networking, campaigning, training and social organisation for women journalists - at all ages and stages of their careers - who work across all the written, broadcast and new media in Scotland.
We want to get as many women as possible involved and use the launch party to hear ideas about what members would like to get from the organisation.
How about masterclasses on negotiating pay rises and promotions, getting the most out of social media, or the ever-tricky subject of work life balance? Tell us what sort of speakers might inspire and inform and what sort of social events might attract a crowd.
First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP has kindly agreed to launch WIJ Scotland - a woman who has reached the top in the tough world of politics and done so much to encourage and inspire girls to fulfil their potential.
We will hear from EY partner, Tricia Nelson, who supports women at all stages of their careers through networking, mentoring and coaching.
NUJ Scotland is also offering its support and expertise. Fiona Davidson, joint secretary of NUJ Scotland Glasgow branch, will also say a few words about the current situation for the many women journalists they represent. Committee members from our sister organisation in London Women in Journalism are also coming along.
The event is free and wine, soft drinks and nibbles will be provided. We hope it will be a fun evening, so please come along and forward this email onto any other women you think might like to join us. If you don’t want to receive any more emails from us, please reply and we’ll remove you from the mailing list.
