Yumi Wilson resigns as JAWS President

The Journalism & Women Symposium is grateful to Yumi Wilson for her service as president of the Board of Directors during a challenging year and a half of growth and change.

Under JAWS bylaws, Vice President Lindsey Anderson will become interim president, continuing to work closely with President-Elect Mira Lowe, who will begin her two-year term as president at the annual conference in September.

On Wednesday, the JAWS Board of Directors will vote to appoint a 13th member to complete the Board.

The Board is committed to furthering equity and inclusion in JAWS and is currently interviewing candidates to lead diversity and inclusion trainings for regional groups and at the conference.
