Renew now and keep JAWS strong in these challenging times. We're offering a 25% discount for renewing today, whether you're a current member or your membership has lapsed.
In these extraordinary times, journalism is more important than ever – and so is the representation of women, trans and non-binary people in all facets of the profession.
We must stand together to fulfill the Journalism and Women Symposium’s (JAWS’) mission of supporting underrepresented journalists and working toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. Women, underrepresented in U.S. newsrooms even before COVID-19, are already suffering higher unemployment than men during this crisis – and the numbers are even worse for women of color.
We need each other more than ever to buck this trend. To encourage you to renew (or rejoin), we are excited to offer 25% off for your renewal when you renew by Aug. 31, 2020!
JAWS is here to help you grow your network and learn the new skills you need to succeed professionally with virtual networking, webinars, online training discounts and regional programming. We support each other personally and professionally, sharing job opportunities, contacts, knowledge and lived experiences to help each other succeed.
But we can only continue to do this with your support and membership. Women journalists around the nation need you in these unprecedented times. We hope you will continue to support the sisterhood of JAWS.
There are two categories of membership: voting and associate. All memberships are subject to board approval. If your work or education circumstances have changed, you're welcome to renew under a more accurate category. JAWS operations may contact you in the event of such changes (for example, to confirm enrollment in a journalism degree program or a career change that makes a member eligible for voting membership). The membership criteria are as follows:
Voting membership (including Emerging Professional and Lifetime membership) is open to:
Associate members (including Student members) are entitled to all the privileges of membership except voting and pay the same dues and fees. The following people may join:
*For purposes of this membership category, a student is defined as someone currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program.
