The giving season started yesterday with Giving Tuesday, and by the end of the day Journalism and Women Symposium had many reasons to feel the love.
Together, you raised $5,130 for our goal to fund training that will help women journalists stay on the cutting edge of their profession, and JAWS member (and former board member) Amy Resnick matched $2,000 of that amount. With your generous support, we far exceeded our initial goal of $3,000.
Your donations will power our webinars, events and regional trainings that will connect women to each other and to the latest skills in journalism. Women journalists of all career stages will access tools and connections that can empower them to stay in journalism, hold those in power accountable and work towards a more accurate portrayal of the whole society.
Thank you for not only donating, but for telling your networks why you gave. From lasting friendships formed through JAWS to skills and confidence gained through our workshops and trainings, we are glad to have made an impact on your personal and professional journeys.
If you missed the chance to give on Giving Tuesday, stay tuned for for information about our year-end campaign and even more ways to help our mission to support the professional empowerment and personal growth of women in journalism.
