BENEFITING: JOURNALISM AND WOMEN SYMPOSIUM
The Journalism and Women Symposium is dedicated to helping women advance in journalism and ensuring news coverage that provides a full and accurate picture of society. Thanks to sponsor support, JAWS provides mentoring and training in leadership, innovation, digital/mobile technology and newsgathering skills each year to 1,000 leading U.S. women journalists who make up the JAWS community. Hundreds of full members represent 150+ news organizations – from The New York Times to NPR to new digital startups.
The Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) offers an excellent opportunity to reach hundreds of prominent women journalists who gather annually for a weekend of intensive training and alliance-building. Past speakers include Pulitzer Prize winner Sonia Nazario, Jezebel founder and columnist Anna Holmes, longtime AP courts reporter Linda Deutsch, New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson and Gloria Steinem.
Help us train a new generation of journalists committed to working towards our mission of a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. Our goal is to raise $15,000, and we know that's possible with your support.
