The Parenthood presents the first of a series of conversations with well-known identities who are also parents!
Acclaimed ABC Foreign Correspondent and political journalist Emma Griffiths will talk to us about reporting from the frontline, motherhood and juggling it all.
Join us for The Parenthood's first 'In Conversation Series.'
Emma Griffiths was the ABC's Moscow correspondent. She covered the horrors of the school siege in Beslan, the political upheavals of Ukraine's "orange" revolution, travelled to the Arctic circle to report on Russia's indigenous whale hunters and kept an eye on Vladimir Putin – all while trying to master the local art of vodka toasts.
Her coverage of the events in Beslan won her a highly commended nod in the 2005 Walkley Awards. She returned to Australia in 2008 and became state political reporter for New South Wales, before moving back to Canberra to take up a position in the Parliament House bureau.
Emma Griffiths and her family returned to her hometown of Brisbane last year where she presents the 612 ABC Brisbane's Drive program.
