Maynard Institute Invites Executive Leadership Applicants for Maynard 200 Fellowship

Deadline: April 19, 2019

The Maynard Institute for Journalism Education invites leaders and top managers to apply for the Executive Leadership Track of the Maynard 200 Fellowship Program. Encouraged to apply are those who have served in mid-to upper-level positions, and those seeking roles such as CEO, COO, CFO, president, publisher, vice president, editor-in-chief, managing editor, etc.

The goal of the program is to expand diversity at the top of levels of mainstream news organizations, and to provide professional development for individuals working in ethnic media.

Professionals affiliated with ethnic media outlets, community-based media or smaller mainstream media organizations are strongly encouraged to apply. Applicants must be based in the United States or working for an outlet that serves a U.S. audience.

The Leadership track is part of the Maynard Institute’s pilot program to expand the diversity pipeline by training 200 diverse journalists over five years in media entrepreneurship, management and storytelling. The program launched in 2018 with a successful pilot that graduated 26 fellows. The next pilot will graduate at least 15 fellows, no less than five in each track.
