JOURNALISM AND WOMEN SYMPOSIUM
February 28, 2011
JAWS is an amazing organization of female journalists--simultaneously dead-serious and raucously funny, immensely supportive and highly challenging. From the very first time I attended "camp," the annual symposium, I was more than welcomed. People roped me into conversations and meals, offered their guest rooms if I ever traveled to their cities, were generous with their time and connections, and urged me to aim high and higher. These profound friends have asked me to double-check my sources, given me phone numbers and inside knowledge, and let me help them when I could. Give! Join! Come make new friends and connections, and change journalism into a field that better supports women!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Sources, connections, friendships, ideas, fundraising, job-hunting.
