International Women's Day Celebration: Hobart
06/03/2020 @ 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm Australia/Hobart
Women in Media Tasmania are kicking off the year with a fantastic event on March 6. To celebrate International Women’s Day, we have a networking event and Q&A with the hugely talented new editor of The Mercury, Jenna Cairney.
For the past two years, Jenna was editor of The Townsville Bulletin and before that she was editor of the Sunshine Coast Daily and ARM’s editor of the year.
Jenna won the recent regional journalism News Award for her leadership of The Bulletin during a difficult year for Townsville when the north Queensland city was hit by natural disaster and her campaigning helped restore community confidence.
Originally from Dundee in Scotland, Jenna started out my career at DC Thomson in Dundee, Scotland – the city famous for its jute, jam and journalism – reporting on the Evening Telegraph, Courier and Sunday Post.
She moved to Australia more than a decade ago and took her first journalism job down under at the Warwick Daily News.
Don’t miss this fabulous evening on March 6 to raise a glass with your WIM colleagues to celebrate IWD and hear from an award-winning editor.
