Fellows selected for 2018 SABEW Goldschmidt Data Immersion Workshop

The Society of American Business Editors and Writers (SABEW) has selected 22 business journalists for the five-day SABEW Goldschmidt Data Immersion Workshop, which will be Jan. 8-12, 2018, in Washington, D.C. Fellows were chosen from a pool of 37 applicants.

The workshop will focus on understanding how the government uses data, and participants will be able to speak directly with those who compile and manage the statistics. Journalists will talk with experts at the Census Bureau, the Bureau of Economic Analysis, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics and explore the large cache of data each agency produces, as well as learn its importance to readers.

“Every year, SABEW receives more applications for this fellowship, demonstrating the growing need and popularity of this valuable program. This data-immersion training is a great SABEW member benefit,” said Marty Steffens, SABEW chair and University of Missouri business journalism professor, who will lead the training, along with Kevin Hall, chief economics correspondent and senior investigative reporter for McClatchy Newspapers.

The workshop is made possible thanks to a grant from the Chicago-based Walter and Karla Goldschmidt Foundation, a loyal SABEW funding partner since 2010.
