A new program will address issues that journalists of color face in digital journalism, particularly in leadership roles.

That’s the aim of a partnership recently announced between Poynter Institute and the National Association of Black Journalists.

According to a joint press statement, the tuition-free program will be held in November at Poynter’s campus in St. Petersurg, Florida.

Applications will be accepted beginning this summer. Contact Elisa Jackson, executive director of the Poynter Foundation, at ejackson@poynter.org or NABJ executive consultant Drew Berry at drewnabj@gmail.com.

The program will include the following:

  • Guidance on navigating newsroom culture
  • Leadership styles
  • Business of journalism and entrepreneurship
  • Networking
  • One-on-one coaching

The program is patterned after the ONA-Poynter Leadership Academy for Women which has offered training in digital media to women for the past two years.
