AdvaNCing the Issues
Women AdvaNCe would like to recognize the work of an outstanding female journalist through our Advancing the Issues Award presented at this November’s NC Women’s Summit. Encouraging constructive public dialogue and information on social issues impacting women’s lives is a core tenet of our mission. To further this commitment, we’re looking to honor a female journalist progressing social change through her storytelling and media coverage of women’s issues.
We’re asking our allies to help us identify a woman in your community who has shaped the debate on NC issues critical to women and their families. Nominate someone who has delivered content to mobilize and empower the community across the issues in your area. We welcome nominations for journalism in these categories: newspaper, blogging, radio broadcasting, podcasting, and photo journalism.
The ideal nominee will possess the following qualities:
Full Time or freelance woman journalist in print, online media, and broadcast journalism
Advanced issues through keeping the community aware of public policy initiatives and developments
Increased the quantity and quality of media coverage of women’s issues
Has drawn attention to regressive policies that are aimed at limiting women’s rights and negatively impacting their families
Once selected, the awarded journalist will be invited to attend our NC Women’s Summit at The Collider to be honored among a collection of North Carolina women and their allies.
