Our Team

Building the future of news.

Global Press team members are journalists, editors, educators and international development professionals. Together, we are driving extraordinary change in the field of journalism.

Our Reporters

Global Press seeks to simultaneously disrupt inequality in the newsroom and in the representation of the people and places we cover. Our team of female reporters come from diverse educational and socioeconomic backgrounds. They represent different races, religions, tribes, castes and generations, which enables them to cover their similarly-diverse communities with knowledge and nuance.
