Her Girl Friday was founded in Brooklyn in 2011 by a group of lady journos working in print, online, photo, radio, and film. Our simple mission was to create more opportunities for ourselves and others to learn, collaborate, talk shop, inspire each other, and hang out.
What We Do
We produce a few events a year with good vibes and real takeaways for (and featuring!) female-identified journalists in journalism and nonfiction storytelling. Our events focus on highlighting projects, encouraging collaboration, and helping journalists to expand their toolkits. We’ve had panels on how to pitch stories, presentations featuring investigative projects, and recently went out to San Francisco to showcase journalists who were choosing their own adventures.
