The Finnish Broadcasting Company, Yle, is happy to host the 5th Women Executives in Media (WEM) meeting which will focus on "Women and Sport".
We will bring together both journalists and leading people from the sports field to discuss issues concerning women sports coverage in media, diversity and sports as a personal development tool.
We will also offer you some outdoor activities.
The meeting will be held the day before the opening ceremony of the next Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, which will be taken into account in the final programme.
Hoping to see you all in Helsinki next winter!
