I’m really excited to announce a new partnership between NEC, The Media Consortium (TMC), and The Laura Flanders Show. Together, we are coordinating the New Economies Reporting Project, an effort to support journalists who are interested in covering new economy stories in the US and Canada.
The project will provide a $1000 stipend to up to 10 journalists to attend monthly press briefings, co-organized by NEC and TMC. These virtual webinars will cover different topics under the new economy umbrella, and will feature community leaders, policy experts, and other relevant spokespeople. We will be reaching out to many NEC members about these briefings in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned!
Journalists receiving stipends will be expected to produce the equivalent of 3 feature stories during the six month period. If you have reporters or publications in mind that you think should apply for this stipend, send them the link to this application. The deadline is May 3, 2017.
