20 Journalists Selected for 2019 SABEW Goldschmidt Fellowship
The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW) has selected 20 business journalists for the five-day SABEW Goldschmidt Data Immersion Workshop, which will be Feb. 25 to March 1 in Washington, D.C. Fellows were chosen from a pool of 39 applicants.
The workshop will focus on understanding how the government creates and 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, Bureau of Economic Analysis and Bureau of Labor Statistics and explore the large cache of data each agency produces, as well as learn its importance to communities.
“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 in Washington.
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.
