Mid-career fellowships offer a chance to sharpen leadership skills and broaden professional knowledge. And SABEW’s Xana Fellowship helps female journalists do just that. It also honors one of our own.
Xana Antunes, a SABEW board member who served as a top editor at Quartz, the New York Post, CNBC Digital, Crain’s New York, and Fortune CNN/Money.com, passed away in 2020 at age 55 from pancreatic cancer. She was a terrific leader known for her ability to manage through disruptive change. She was also a mentor and supporter of other journalists, particularly female journalists. The Xana Fellowship carries on that tradition.
The program kicked off at our virtual SABEW20 conference in November 2020, with 10 female journalists participating in an invitation-only leadership program. Below is a list of SABEW’s Xana Fellowship classes.
