On today’s episode, we salute Katie Hawkins-Gaar.

 Katie is a freelance writer and the founder of Digital Women Leaders, a mentoring program for women and non-binary people working in news who are looking for advice from someone who understands their experience. It’s a free program with dozens of coaches available for a 30-minute session.

Katie also edits the newsletter, My Sweet Dumb Brain, a newsletter about facing the ups and downs of life, all while being kind to yourself.

Katie talked about her journalism experience, how the Digital Women Leaders program works and the type of advice mentees receive, and gave examples of topics that she addresses in her newsletter, which often focuses on mental health.
