We really hope you enjoy listening to the career story of Joanna Norris on The Female Career podcast.
Joanna started her career as a journalist, working here in New Zealand including as Chief reporter for The Press. After a period overseas, she took on the role of Digital Editor for the Dominion Post before returning to The Press in 2012 in Christchurch as Editor, the first woman to ever take on this post. A couple of years later she also took on the role of South Island Editor-in-Chief for Fairfax Media, alongside her editor role. In 2017 Joanna made a really interesting career move, taking on the role of CEO of ChristchurchNZ, the economic development and promotion agency for the Christchurch region.
