Hannah Storm

Hannah Storm has been a journalist for two decades, most recently as the Director and CEO of the Ethical Journalism Network, as well as a media consultant specialising in gender-based violence and gender sensitive reporting. She is an experienced moderator, public speaker, and panellist.

As the former director of the International News Safety Institute (INSI), she established a vital physical and virtual safety network for its members, which included some of the world’s most best known news organisations. She convened this network – which included Reuters, Agence France-Press, the BBC, CNN, Globo and NHK – and competing media houses share good practice and solutions to some of the most important security challenges of recent times.

She is the co-author of The Emotional Toll on Journalists Covering the Refugee Crisis and The Kidnapping of Journalists: Reporting from High Risk Conflict Zones, both written for the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford and No Woman’s Land: On the Frontlines with Female Reporters, published by INSI, which explores the unique safety issues for women working in the media.
