Welcome to TFP’s roundup of hiring news highlighting women’s roles in the evolving media landscape—our final Women in Media post of 2013! Here’s the latest from the past couple of weeks:

  • Deirdre Finnegan has been named Publisher of Meredith Corp.’s Eating Well. She has previously served as Associate Publisher at both Cottage Living and Coastal Living.
  • Marjorie Scardino, CEO of Pearson, has joined Twitter’s Board of Directors. Scardino’s appointment marks the first time a woman has been named to Twitter’s board. She is also on the Board of Trustees for the Carter Center and chairs the MacArthur Foundation’s Board of Directors.
  • Sarah Miller is taking on the new role of European Editor for Time Inc.’s Travel + Leisure. Miller was the founding Editor in Chief of the British edition of Condé Nast Traveller.
  • Andrea Greeven Douzet is has been hired as Publisher of Manhattan, Beach, and Front Desk New York magazines, which are published by Modern Luxury. She most recently was the Fashion and Accessories Advertising Director at InStyle.
  • Amy Wilkins has been promoted from Senior Vice President and Publisher of Martha Stewart Weddings to Corporate Director of Advertising Sales and Marketing. Her prior roles include stints at Health, Biography, Smithsonian, Better Homes and Gardens, and Country Home.
  • Andie Coller is leaving Politico, where she was a Contributing Editor, to become Deputy Editor of National Journal.
  • Jessica Lessin, formerly a reporter for The Wall Street Journal, launched a subscription-only technology news site last week, called The Information. Lessin discussed the venture in a recent interview with Gigaom.
  • Pew Research Center gender and workplace survey chartA bright spot in the Pew Research Center’s latest report on gender and work is the news that women in the millennial generation (ages 18-32) are earning 93 cents for every dollar their male counterparts make. Across age groups, however, the average is 84 cents on the dollar, and it remains to be seen whether the millennial generation will be able to sustain their momentum as they age. See Pew’s “10 Findings about Women in the Workplace” for a summary of the survey’s key takeaways.
  • The Guardian drew our attention to a video by The Representation Project titled “How the Media Failed Women in 2013.” Though it starts out with some reasons to celebrate when it comes to how women were portrayed in the media this year, there’s an abundance of lowlights.
