WHO WE ARE

WELCOME TO THE WOMAN’S NEWSROOM FOUNDATION

The Woman’s Newsroom Foundation is a feminist Nairobi-based organisation established in 2018 to amplify the voices of women in Kenya’s news media, and to bolster the place of women journalists in the newsrooms. Its vision is to pursue gender equality and sensitivity in news content; guaranteeing fairness in the coverage of women; and pursuing policies and mechanisms that advance careers and professional aspirations of women journalists in the media industry.

The key objective of the Foundation is to strengthen the voice of the woman in the media and to support the professional growth and career progression of women working in the media industry. Our focus is to ensure that women from all cadres of society, including women leaders, community members, and those women in the policy-making space, get a platform to share their ideas; to participate and influence important public debates on development in Kenya. We aim to magnify the visibility of women in the print, online, digital and broadcast media platforms.

Our special focus is to support women journalists, female students who are passionate about journalism, active journalists and editors, offering opportunities for mentorship,  professional networking, and training. We reach out to experienced women journalists who are no longer in the mainstream media and those still practicing  to work with us as  mentors to the younger colleagues and those new in the profession.
