The Female Factor

“We looked several years ago at events that were going on in Washington around the White House Correspondents’ Dinner and we realized there was nothing that celebrated great women,” said Gloria Dittus of Story Partners; thus the 2nd Annual Welcome to Washington: A Salute to Women in Journalism event evolved.

The April 23rd event hosted by Gloria at her home in Northwest Washington was co-hosted by Christina Bellantoni, Roll Call; Juliana Goldman, CBS; Tamara Keith, NPR; Kate Nocera, Buzzfeed and Nedra Pickler, AP and sponsored by Southern Company and CQ Roll Call.
