ELP Asia 2022 AMA Session: Why and How You Should Apply to AAJA’s Flagship Training Program

Join ELP Asia Alumni Regina Hing and Rebecca Isjwara – on Saturday 2 April, at 4:00 pm HKT – for an informal Ask Me Anything online session about AAJA’s Executive Leadership Program.

For more than 20 years, AAJA’s Executive Leadership Program (ELP) has been developing leaders for the media industry in an increasingly diverse and cross-cultural world. Applications are open for the ELP Asia 2022 edition, until April 8.

The AMA session will be a unique opportunity to hear from Regina, Rebecca and other alumni what makes ELP really unique and why it is worth applying for.

This session will also be the opportunity to ask any question you may have about how to apply and what is the best way to qualify for a full tuition grant through the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) fellowships sponsored by the Google News Initiative.
