JAWS fills the huge gaps in education and training for women in journalism. Most newsrooms do not have the capacity or time to do training. JAWS does nuts and bolts training on using new media, digital equipment, editing, reporting, shooting stories, upgrading and improving one's skills, etc. This community of helps continues on a day to day basis through its daily email alerts, information sharing and help to individuals. It has extremely low administrative expenses and is a labor of love AND achievement.

JAWS offers women an embracing community in which those of us who have worked as journalists can share ideas and experiences, support one another and learn from each other. It's an invaluable resource and an inspirational community. Though I am not always able to get to the annual conferences, I value enormously the e-mail communications that JAWS members send to one another and the resources that the organization provides.
