Whether it’s podcasts or premium newsletters, the upper echelons of the independent publishing space are heavily male-dominated. The lack of diversity became even more apparent during the pandemic as platforms like Substack, Patreon and other emerging spaces started to attract more journalists.
What holds women back from launching a successful career as a solo publisher and succeed as an entrepreneur? And why does diversity of voices matter in this dynamic, experimental space? Join us for an online discussion with Thomas Baekdal, veteran independent media analyst; Isabelle Roughol, producer of the independent newsletter and podcast Borderline; Qin Xie, journalist and producer of Money Talk; and Penelope Jones, a founder of coaching practice for women journalist My So-Called Career
