In partnership with the World Association of Newspapers (WAN-IFRA) & Women In News (WIN), frayintermedia produced a six-week media management foundation e-learning course. The objective of the course is to equip women with critical leadership skills. This is a catalyst course to help widen diversity in media leadership.
