Journalists of Color

BIPOC newsroom leaders are spearheading coverage of the most pressing social issues of our time.

2023 JOC Fellows

The Journalists of Color Fellowship is designed to identify and support a cohort of diverse, next-generation leaders through a program of solutions journalism, leadership training, mentorship and community of practice.

Fellows will leave the program with a clear understanding of core leadership principles and learn how to spearhead coverage that responds to the most pressing social issues of our time. In addition, fellows will work in a community of peers and gain knowledge from leaders of color working in newsrooms across the United States. The fellowship was created with the intention to support more BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Color) journalists moving into newsroom leadership positions, where diversity and inclusion are critical to news coverage and the media industry as a whole.
