On September 30, INMA awarded 30 young professionals around the world with its second class of “30 Under 30” award as part of its Young Professionals Initiative. This is the 23rd in a series of 30 features about these impressive rising media stars who are shaping our industry.
In the five years since she joined the media industry, Daniela Werbeniec has made a rapid ascent to become senior project manager and communications lead — a role that was created specifically for her.
Working with the top management at Gazeta Wyborcza, she works to create initiatives and raise awareness about the importance of supporting the freedom of the press in Poland. She also does outreach to individuals in media organisations throughout Europe to ensure an international impact.
“I believe I am part of a generation that needs to revolutionise the news media, rendering it more inclusive, ethical, and democratic.”
As part of that mission, she connects journalists and editors in projects, creating a bridge between departments and generations. And, through her efforts, she hopes to one day become a top executive within Poland’s male-dominated news industry.
In doing so, she wants to not only further her career but blaze a trail: “I also strive to empower other talented women in the media.”
