Her Girl Friday is dedicated to empowering journalists and nonfiction storytellers by creating opportunities for learning, networking, collaboration, and the production and showcasing of meaningful nonfiction projects in a variety of media. Our initiatives are open to anyone, but our focus is on centering those who identify as women including but not limited to cisgender, transgender, femme, gender non-conforming and non-binary people of any nationality, ethnicity, age, ability, or orientation.
