Earlier this evening, we had the pleasure of hosting a conference call to discuss the application process for the 2013-14 class of John S. Knight Journalism Fellows at Stanford University. The program is actively seeking a more diverse talent pool and is reaching out to journalists of color. The call featured one current and two past Knight fellows:
- Latoya Peterson, editor/owner, Racialicious, 2013 Knight Fellow;
- Claudia Nunez, investigative reporter and founder of RDataVox.com, an online data visualization network for ethnic media journalists and non-profit organizations, 2012 Knight Fellow; and
- Phuong Ly, founder, Gateway California, and executive director of the Institute for Justice & Journalism, 2011 Knight Fellow.
We thank all those who participated on the call. If you weren’t able to make it, click here for a recording.
