    Hand-Picked Mentors and Networking: Apply for ProPublica’s 2020 Diversity Mentorship Program at ONA

    We’re organizing and hosting a digital event that pairs mentees with mentors based on their backgrounds, challenges and interests in journalism.

    ProPublica will once again organize and host the Diversity Mentorship Event at the Online News Association conference this fall. This is the sixth year of the program, which is designed to connect people from communities that are historically underrepresented in journalism with people at the top of the field.

    ONA20 is remote and virtual, and we are too.

    Professional networks are crucial to advancing a journalist’s career. The goal of this event is to help promising journalists build these networks in order to make the industry more inclusive.

    Past mentors have included newsroom leaders, startup founders, highly accomplished reporters, producers, designers, editors and more.

    We pair mentees with mentors based on their backgrounds, challenges and interests in journalism. Mentees also have an opportunity to network with one another.

    We’ll host a virtual event for 65 people who are participating in the ONA conference on Thursday, Oct. 8. We stick to a 1-1 or 2-1 ratio of mentees to mentors for this event, which means we’ll accept about 45 mentees. Our event will kick off with a short group discussion and then will transition to virtual guided networking between mentors and mentees.

    Anyone from an underrepresented group — including people of color, women, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities — is welcome to apply to be a mentee. Applicants must be attending ONA and must be available Thursday, Oct. 8, at 1 p.m. EDT.

    If you’re interested in being a mentee, apply via this form. The deadline to apply is Sept. 28. We’ll let you know if you’ve been matched with a mentor by Oct. 1. We’ll do our best to match everyone with a mentor, but space is limited.

    If you’re interested in being a mentor, you can apply via this form. Past mentors have found the experience easy and rewarding, and they have let us know they appreciate meeting and sharing their knowledge with ambitious journalists in the middle stages of their careers. We will provide some guidance for beginning and maintaining a relationship with your mentee.

    Protect Independent Journalism

    ProPublica is a nonprofit newsroom that produces nonpartisan, evidence-based journalism to expose injustice, corruption and wrongdoing. We were founded ten years ago to fill a growing hole in journalism: newsrooms were (and still are) shrinking, and legacy funding models failing. Deep-dive reporting like ours is slow and expensive, and investigative journalism is a luxury in many newsrooms today — but it remains as critical as ever to democracy and our civic life. A decade (and five Pulitzer Prizes) later, ProPublica has built the largest investigative newsroom in the country. Our work has spurred reform through legislation, at the voting booth, and inside our nation’s most important institutions.

    This story you’ve just finished was funded by our readers and we hope it inspires you to make a gift to ProPublica so that we can publish more investigations like this one that holds people in power to account and produces real change.

    Your donation will help us ensure that we can continue this critical work. From the Trump Administration, criminal justice, health care, immigration and so much more, we are busier than ever covering stories you won’t see anywhere else. Make your gift of any amount today and join the tens of thousands of ProPublicans across the country, standing up for the power of independent journalism to produce real, lasting change. Thank you.
