Stephanie Nolen is the Latin America correspondent for The Globe and Mail.
After years as a roving correspondent that included coverage of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Stephanie moved to Johannesburg in 2003 to open a new bureau for The Globe, to report on what she believed was the world's biggest uncovered story, Africa's AIDS pandemic. She won four National Newspaper Awards for her work in Africa, for coverage of AIDS and for stories on the wars and humanitarian crises in Uganda, Sudan, Somalia, Zimbabwe and Sierra Leone.
Her book 28 Stories of AIDS in Africa won the 2007 PEN "Courage" Award and was nominated for the 2007 Governor-General's Award for Non-Fiction. A national bestseller in Canada, it has been published in nine countries and six languages. While in Africa, she also won the Markwell Media Award from the International Society of Political Psychologists, for her "combination of creative brilliance, humanitarian compassion, personal courage, and the relentless pursuit of truth."
In 2008, she moved to New Delhi, to open a Globe bureau there. She's won seven National Newspaper Award, including one for coverage of India's crisis of child malnutrition in her first year there. Working across South Asia, she has also reported on issues including the final days of the Tamil Tigers and the civil war in Sri Lanka; and humanitarian crises in Pakistan stemming from natural disasters and the rise of Islamist extremism.
In 2013, she opened The Globe's bureau in Rio de Janeiro from which she covers Latin America.
Before joining the Globe in 1998, she was based in the Middle East and wrote for publications including Newsweek and the Independent of London. Stephanie is also the author of Promised the Moon: the Untold Story of the First Women in the Space Race (Penguin, 2002) and Shakespeare's Face (Random House, 2002), which has been published in seven countries to date.
She holds a Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) from the University of King's College in Halifax and a Master of Science in development economics from the London School of Economics in England. She has been recognized with honorary doctorates in civil laws from King's (2009) and Guelph University (2010). Her coverage of caste and gender issues in India won the prestigious Ramnath Goenka Award for Excellence in Journalism, presented for "work that generates and sustains public trust in the media and impacts the lives of people."
She lives with her partner and their two children in Rio, where she is making slow progress with lessons in Portuguese, her sixth language.
