A tribute to Gwen Ifill’s remarkable life and legacy


Washington Week celebrates Gwen Ifill’s remarkable life and legacy with the friends and colleagues who knew her best. Michele Norris, Gwen’s close friend, leads the conversation between many of their fellow journalists, and notes how she embodied the motto “lift while you climb.” As a trailblazing journalist, Dan Balz describes Gwen as a “barrier breaker” and discusses the grace and originality she brought to the Washington Week table. The panel shares their memories of Gwen as a friend, mentor and reporter with a legacy that will not be matched.
