Journalist Judy Friedberg is a freelance media consultant and journalist who worked on both foreign and home news before specialising in Higher Education as Universities Editor at the Guardian newspaper responsible for the University Guide and Guardian Students and overseeing the Higher Education editorial.
Judy Friedberg will visit the University of Lincoln in November 2017 for the first time to talk about her career in journalism and offer insight into her role at the Guardian, a flagship media outlet embracing the digitalisation of media reporting.
The audience will also hear about Judy’s very personal experiences of growing up in South Africa at the time of the Apartheid, encouraging her to start teaching in local townships overcoming adversity and breaking down prejudices that were ingrained in the South African culture and education system at the time. Judy is a great ambassador for education with the ability to inspire both young and old audiences with both humour and humility.
Judy was recently well received at a talk she provided in London for a University of Lincoln Alumni and Teachers Network Event.
This lecture is free to attend but prior booking is essential.
