Workforce Development Pathways and Internships Working Group

To serve the modern information needs of Colorado’s diverse communities, local newsrooms need editorial and business leaders with a wide range of skill sets, perspectives, and life experiences. What formal and informal training and pathways are available for young and entrepreneurial Coloradans, as this mission-critical industry continues to evolve?

This is a huge, overarching issue for Colorado media; so in 2023 we’ve selected “Designing Equitable Internships” as the focus for this working group. Newsrooms that are planning to host paid internships this summer are invited to join us, to share best practices and get guidance from experts, and to develop and pilot a sustainable fellowship model that offers cohort support and mentorship for interns of color and with diverse backgrounds.
