Fellows will gather online over the next six months and learn to lead in an industry transformed by technology

World Editors Forum Asia Chapter, with the support of Temasek Foundation, has launched a new Young Media Leaders (YML) Fellowship Programme with the aim of nurturing the next generation of media leaders who are committed to shaping the regional future.

The program was launched on Monday with its inaugural class of 30 fellows, said a statement issued by the organization.

The aim is for YML fellows to contribute effectively to the pursuit of good journalism, foster dialogue and greater connectedness among one another, and build up newsrooms to meet the needs of their societies in these uncertain times.

The inaugural class of YML fellows is comprised of young, high-potential editors and journalists from across the region nominated by their newsrooms. 

They will gather online over the next six months to share experiences, exchange ideas, amplify the impact of news reporting, and learn to lead in an industry transformed by technology.

This is especially relevant as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to batter global economies and threaten the future of the publishing industry.

Owing to the Covid-19 pandemic, the YML program will take place mostly over online platforms.

Fellows will also continue to deepen their engagement with one another during and after the program through the establishment of an alumni community on social media and through future speaking opportunities, said the press release.

World Editors Forum Asia Chapter is the regional network in Asia for editors within the World Association of News Publishers (WAN-IFRA).
