“Women reporters of color are still vastly underrepresented across U.S. newsrooms and media industries. To bring more sustainable support to this group of makers, AIR is excited to launch Claiming the Rad in Radio Fellowship, a mentorship program designed to provide career pathways, resources, networking opportunities and advice for women of color in media.
Claiming the Rad in Radio will pair five mentors with five women-identifying makers of color for five months. During that time, mentor-mentee pairs will have five contact hours for coaching and discussions around topics like career transitions, assertiveness on the job, dealing with race and gender bias, salary/pay negotiations and finding/creating community for self care.
Throughout the mentorship period, mentees will have exclusive access to five webinars specifically designed for the fellowship cohort and their mentorship discussion topics. We’re bringing together a line-up of incredible women in the industry to serve as mentors, including Independent Storyteller Dmae Roberts, fundraising expert Alyce Myatt, CEO Juleyka Lantigua Williams of Lantigua Williams & Co., Audience and Innovation Director Kim Bui of AZ Central, and Editor and Reporter Carmel Delshad of WAMU.”
DEADLINE: September 30.
