Covering Business When Business Isn’t Your Beat


Goldschmidt DC Data Workshop

Learn from government professionals that gather and analyze the nation’s economic data. Applications are open for SABEW’s 2023 Goldschmidt Fellowship Data Immersion Workshop that takes place Sunday evening, February 26, and concludes the morning of Thursday, March 2, in Washington, D.C.

Apply Now

Applications are due 5 p.m. ET, Tuesday, January 24.
Fellows will be notified by email on Thursday, January 26.

With the workshop focusing on understanding how the government uses data, fellows will also receive training on FOIA and learn how to track down hidden data. Journalists will be surrounded by experts during this all-access program and will be able to speak directly with those who compile and manage the statistics as they explore the large cache of data each agency produces, and understand the data’s importance to their communities.

The workshop is in its ninth year and is funded annually by a grant from the Illinois-based Walter and Karla Goldschmidt Foundation to SABEW.

The week-long event will include networking opportunities with representatives from:

  • American Statistical Association (ASA)
  • Brookings
  • U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA)
  • U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS)
  • U.S. Census Bureau
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)
  • Investment Company Institute

Out-of-town participants will receive a modest stipend to offset meals and travel costs. Four nights of lodging, plus breakfast, will be provided at the Hyatt Place Washington DC/White House hotel. Participants or their employers must cover any additional expenses. (If your company can pay for your expenses, it will be appreciated, as it may allow another applicant to attend.)

Attendance is required at all sessions. Employers are expected to give the participants time to learn and not require work during the week. The workshop seeks reporters or editors of all experience levels, and all applicants must be SABEW members.

Previous fellows praised the program as “highly informative” and have used the knowledge to enhance their daily reporting and inspire projects.

The workshop is led by Marty Steffens, SABEW chair at the University of Missouri, and Kevin G. Hall, SABEW past president and North America editor for Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project. Steffens has organized more than 100 workshops, many for SABEW, since she became an endowed chair in 2002. Hall was part of the 2017 Pulitzer-winning team that dissected the Panama Papers.

“Business reporting is a process of continuing education,” Steffens said. “To do the job right, reporters need immersion training, not just spot training. The training is intensive, hands-on, and classroom-style.”
