Poynter-NABJ: Leadership Academy for Diversity in Digital Media Programme

Deadline: 17 August 2018

Poynter in collaboration with the National Association of Black Journalists is inviting applications for “The Leadership Academy for Diversity in Digital Media” programme to create a transformational leadership program for journalists of color working in digital media. The program will be at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida, from Dec. 2-7.

This free program will address the unique issues journalists of color face on the path to leadership in digital journalism and technology organizations. It will include guidance on management styles, the business of journalism, navigating newsroom culture, as well as networking and one-on-one coaching. Poynter and NABJ will collaborate closely to build an interactive, agile curriculum for the next generation of leaders.

The program will be structured to encourage open, candid discussion and mentoring, and participants will walk away with not only strong leadership skills, but a built-in support system for the future. All participants will get one-on-one coaching, seek and analyze 360 feedback and create a personal leadership strategy.

The interactive, week-long academy will focus on critical skills journalists of color face on the path to leadership in digital journalism and technology. Sessions will explore:

  • Developing effective management styles
  • Understanding journalism business models
  • Navigating newsroom and digital culture
  • Building collaborative teams
  • Managing across differences
  • Audience engagement
  • Emerging technologies
  • Coaching critical thinking

Eligibility Criteria

  • All journalists of color working in the digital space with leadership responsibilities or demonstrated leadership potential.
  • Though the program partner is the National Association of Black Journalists, Poynter strongly encourage journalists of all ethnic and racial backgrounds to apply.
