Attention Members: Call for Volunteers

JAWS is looking for member volunteers for the 2021-22 committees and task forces!

Please consider joining a committee or task force this year to share your unique skills and opinions to support the Journalism & Women Symposium mission: supporting the professional empowerment and personal growth of women and working toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society.

The JAWS board and staff have listened to your suggestions, and have structured committees and task forces that will put your skills and ideas to work  — whether that’s designing new digital programming, participating in diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts, working on a mentorship and student outreach strategy, supporting regional get-togethers and much more.

Joining a committee is a fantastic opportunity to engage in DEI, financial planning, marketing or fundraising to reinforce JAWS’ mission of supporting the professional empowerment and personal growth of women in journalism and working toward a more accurate portrayal of the whole society. You’ll develop leadership skills, build your resume, make new friends, expand your network — and above all help JAWS deliver the best resources, the most innovative programming and a stronger sense of community for our members – that includes you!

See the 2021-22 committees and task forces and sign up here. Deadline is Monday, March 8.
