-Jocelyn “Joz” Wang

A writer who embraced blogging at its onset, Jocelyn “Joz” Wang is known for her personal blog, jozjozjoz.com, which has been online for over a decade.

As a digital entrepreneur creating spaces for under-represented voices, she is Editor-in-chief/CEO of the popular collaborative online publication 8Asians.com, which features original, diverse commentary by Asians from around the world. She is also a contributor to blogging.LA, flagship site of the Metblogs Network. In 2011, she acquired Metblogs and now runs the entire international network—consisting of over 50 sites worldwide— as its Publisher/CEO.

In 2012, Joz became the Founder and Executive Director of the annual V3con: the V3 Digital Media Conference which celebrates and expands the “Vision. Visibility. Voice.” of diverse journalists, media professionals and digital enthusiasts. Bringing together more than 500 people from around the world, V3con has been sold-out for 4 consecutive years and #V3con trends every year on Twitter during the conference dates. Joz was honored with the first “V3 Voice Award,” for giving voice to Asian Americans and helping others find their voices online.

Leading the Los Angeles Chapter of the Asian American Journalists Association (AAJA), Joz was recognized as “Chapter President of the Year,” while simultaneously serving on the AAJA National Advisory and Governing Boards.

Joz was nominated in 2013 for the Women’s Media Center Social Media Award.
