Astrid Zweynert

Head of Digital News, Thomson Reuters Foundation


I lead the global digital production and social media team for the Thomson Reuters Foundation's website and as deputy editor of a team of more than 30 reporters at the Thomson Reuters Foundation help drive our coverage of humanitarian crises, women’s rights, climate change, human trafficking and property rights. I've reported from more than 20 countries, most recently on a year-long assignment as the Thomson Reuters Foundation Southeast Asia correspondent in 2015. I'm fascinated by how social entrepreneurship can empower people to improve their lives and am keen to tell stories of how it can drive change.
