JAWS invites WIJ to CAMP

Categories Events
Journalism and Women Symposium (JAWS) invites you to attend its 30th anniversary Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) in the United States this fall. We think you will find the trainings, workshops and networking worth the long voyage, and we welcome you to register at our member rate.
Our conference Oct. 9-11 in Whitefish, Montana, brings together women journalists from across the United States and from across media platforms to learn from insightful presenters and from each other. The keynote speakers this year are Emily Bell, formerly of The Guardian and now director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism, and S. Mitra Kalita, managing editor for editorial strategy the Los Angeles Times.
Our program offers a range of tech trainings along with workshops on covering sexual assault, storytelling for the 21st Century, teaching journalism, reporting v. advocacy and much more. We also will screen the film “Difret” with its producer, Dr. Mehret Mandefro.
We believe it is important to do more than sit in a room listening to speakers. That’s why we hold the conference in a scenic location like Glacier National Park and offer attendees a free afternoon to hike and continue conversations started during the workshops and panels.
For more information, please contact JAWS operations director Roxanne Foster (roxanneafoster@gmail.com) or president Linda Kramer Jenning (president@jaws.org).
