Bianca Consunji is originally from Manila, Philippines and now living in Brooklyn, New York. She is a senior producer for NBC News.

From Bianca: I'm a journalist and producer, and feel very strongly about supporting women in the field. I'm an IMWF fellow and was part of the Online News Associations's digital leadership cohort, and I want to call attention to those two particular causes. Women journalists are often overlooked in the newsroom and in the field, and the IMWF (@theiwmf) has been invaluable in giving me reporting opportunities in Eastern Africa that would otherwise be impossible for me to get, and I also provide mentorship to younger women journalists through their Gwen Ifill program. And the ONA (@online_news) has helped me find a network of fellow managers who help me try to become a better boss and mentor. Please support them in any way you can!
