Who Are We?

Inspired by powerful Egyptian and American women leaders, Cleopatra to Coretta is an international exchange program supporting the dialogue of globally-minded female journalists and media professionals to build relationships and promote hero narratives of women making an impact in their community.

Cleopatra to Coretta aims to bridge the gap between the East and the West, to identify and mentor emerging women leaders in the field of journalism and media, and to create new networks of engagement for globally-minded female professionals.

The participants will live and work together in both the United States and Egypt, participating in job shadowing, classes with university students, and guided discussions with industry professionals. Participants in Cleopatra to Coretta will develop media projects to profile strong female leaders in a variety of professional fields.

The Experience

Three journalists and media professionals from two countries will immerse themselves in each other’s’ communities to engage in job shadowing, professional development and East-West dialogue.

The Deliverables

Each participant will deliver a series of multimedia stories about their experience. The focus will be on success stories and culture issues, particularly those involving women.

Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul.
