“The International Women's Media Foundation is thrilled to offer its second security training for journalists based in the United States. We are committed to helping improve the ability of journalists to report safely in an increasingly complex world. This initiative is supported by the Grant for Equity in Reporting from the CBS Corporation. The four day HEFAT course, offered with RPS Partnership, will take place in Phoenix, Arizona from November 13-16, 2019. It will be designed for US-based, women-identifying journalists with at least one year of full time professional journalism experience and a special emphasis will be placed on how to report safely from the United States' southern border. The IWMF will select up to 20 journalists to participate and seeks to support journalists who have not had the opportunity to receive security training, especially journalists from underrepresented backgrounds, and journalists who report from the United States' southern border. The IWMF will arrange travel and lodging for all participants.”
DEADLINE: September 15.
