We have worked with IJNR for approximately fifteen years. In that time frame we have advised IJNR and its management team successfully. It is rewarding to see a lcient listen to your advice and then to have the client act upon the advice in a positive manner.
We appreciate IJNR for its role in society and its ehtics and behavior in the marketplace.
Review from Guidestar
Journalists too often are stuck behind their desks. They report stories on the phone. Or maybe they get to their state capitol. Or city hall. IJNR gets reporters into the farmer's field, or forests, or oil patch, or onto a river or a lake -- often into rural areas where natural resources battles are fought. The expedition-style career development journeys introduce participants to all sides of issues such as water supply and quality, forest and wild land management, farming, commercial fishing, tourism and energy development. For a little more than a week at a time, these journalists get to go deep -- and hear stories of workers, of local residents, of developers, of farmers, of environmental advocates, of policy makers. These are really difficult times for journalists, and programs like IJNR offer can help journalists feel more engaged in the issues they cover, help them tell stories with greater authority, help them feel better about their chosen career path -- and help them do better work. The result is an better informed public.
