JAWS tackles these issues head-on with a combination of training, mentoring, and networking. Each year we support a group of emerging women journalists to attend our annual Conference and Mentoring Program (CAMP) with fellowships and match them with mentors who give guidance on career planning, self-advocacy and leadership. We have brought top-notch speakers such as Gloria Steinem, Jill Abramson, Nikole Hannah-Jones and Dorothy Butler Gilliam to inspire and challenge our members. We offer multimedia training to keep our members competitive in a challenging environment. We are proud of our success stories, but we need your help to continue and grow.
