Advisory Board

Meet the Advisory Board

A group of outstanding women leaders in journalism joined the JAWS Advisory Board in 2012 at a time when our organization was reaching new milestones in membership, programming and fundraising. With an inaugural dinner at the Tamaya Resort in Albuquerque, N.M., our founders, past presidents and new supporters launched a vision for a bigger and bolder JAWS that can serve more women in their changing roles in journalism.
