ATTN: Women Journalists of Color - Fellowship Opportunity Due June 28th
The Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) will bring two Boylan v. NYT fellows to our annual Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) for three days of training, networking and professional development. This year’s JAWS CAMP will be held at The Williamsburg Lodge in Williamsburg, Virginia Sept. 20- 22, 2019.
WHAT IS CAMP?
The JAWS CAMP focuses on strengthening core journalism skills, building personal careers and developing strategies for success in the evolving media landscape. Participants move toward improving gender parity in our profession, empowering women in leadership and management, and encouraging a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. Participants enjoy a dynamic weekend filled with inspiring speakers, motivating career development sessions as well as rewarding networking and mentoring opportunities. JAWS is an experience that has helped launch countless careers and ignited lifelong friendships.
WHAT IS THE BOYLAN V NYT FELLOWSHIP?
The fellowships are offered to women journalists of color, in honor of the women who have fought for equality in newsrooms. A Legacy Fund fellowship pays for transportation, lodging and conference registration, which includes most meals.
