AAJA to revamp ELP, promote diversity in newsrooms with grant from Knight Foundation

To develop leaders in digital journalism and improve diversity in
newsrooms, AAJA will redesign its signature Executive Leadership Program
with $230,000 from the Knight Foundation.

Knight funding will allow the AAJA to begin a two-year restructuring of
the program using human-centered design, an approach that incorporates
feedback from users when developing new ideas, so participants’ needs are
built into the innovation process.

For the first time, the Asian American Journalists Association will open
the program to journalists outside of its membership to create an inclusive environment for journalists of all backgrounds.

The press release and blog post will be up on Monday Oct. 5 at 9 am ET
on AAJA and Knight’s website. I will share the link with all and please
help promote this good news among our members and your social network.
