Joanne Lipman is stepping down as chief content officer/editor-in-chief of USA Today at the end of the year to focus on her upcoming book, “That's What She Said,” which focuses on closing the workplace gender gap.

She said the increased focus on sexual harassment has led to “a flood of interest and opportunities” to promote her book to be published by William Morrow in early 2018.

Before joining USAT’s Gannett in 2015, Lipman served as deputy managing editor of the Wall Street Journal and editor-in-chief of the now defunct Conde Nast Portfolio magazine.

At Gannett, Lipman rebranded its media sites as the USA Today Network, and linked the newsrooms of its 110 lmedia outlets.

She become USAT’s e-i-c this year.
