Deadline extended: Executive Leadership Program and fellowships for journalists [Asia Pacific]

Posted on Mar 14, 2022 in Diversity and Inclusion

Mid-career journalists based in the Asia Pacific region can apply for this online training program.

The Asian American Journalists Association's (AAJA) 2022 Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is now open for applications. The program will feature an international cohort and a mostly online program spread out over eight mini-sessions from May 7 to July 30.

It is designed to grow mid-career journalists as news leaders, managers and executives who can thrive in uncertain times and build a sustainable future for journalism. The program explores the responsibilities and challenges of a media workplace, leading in a changing landscape and the role of cultural values in a corporate environment. 

An in-demand program, ELP 2022 will accept a limited number of fellows. This year, 20 spots will be exclusively offered to journalists based in the Asia Pacific region – with a number of fellowships to defray tuition costs.

The Google News Initiative (GNI) is also supporting AAJA-Asia’s ELP Program with Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) fellowships. Ten participants in Asia from underrepresented communities will be selected to attend ELP and receive full tuition grants.

Applicants from underrepresented groups within their countries' or communities' media industries are encouraged to apply. 

Apply by April 22.
