The Journalism & Women Symposium is excited to welcome 10 fellowship winners to our 2013 JAWS Conference and Mentoring Project in Essex, Vermont (near Burlington) from October 25 – 27.
We raise money each year to support our fellowship program, giving women who are just starting their careers an opportunity to meet some of our trailblazers, feel inspired by learning new skills and also share their energy and enthusiasm with the group.
