Kick start your career with the JAWS network, webinars and more, free for three months!
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 join, we are excited to offer a limited-time offer. New members who join by December 31, 2020, receive a 90-day gift membership. Kick start your career with the JAWS network, webinars and more, free for three months!
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.
After your 90-day gift membership is up, you'll have the opportunity to join with a 1- or 2- year paid membership. Add your name to the roster of incredible women in the JAWS directory by becoming a member of the Journalism and Women Symposium, one of the few national organizations that devotes itself to women in journalism.
