“I am honored to be here and to receive this award. Thank you, Women in News, and thank you, WAN IFRA. This recognition will mark my career. I would’ve loved to speak to you today about the gender balance we have proudly achieved at AJ+. I won’t be speaking about AI, though. I have a personal issue with it.
