The Society for Features Journalism is committed to developing news-gathering staffs that are representative of the multicultural communities its members serve.
Toward this goal, SFJ is sponsoring the Penny Bender Fuchs Diversity Fellowship Program for journalists of color in conjunction with its annual conference, which this year is in Kansas City.
Programming will feature a heavy emphasis on storytelling and leadership, and Diversity Fellows will learn what’s happening in features departments nationwide while networking with outstanding journalists specializing in lifestyle and entertainment coverage.
Fellowships cover SFJ conference registration, airfare within the U.S., and hotel. Fellows also will be reimbursed for expenses toward baggage and transportation.
