Overview of programme
Salesforce and Equal Measures 2030 are pleased to launch their second Fellowship for Data Journalists. Applications are open to data journalists who identify as women or gender minorities and focus on gender issues in Colombia or Guatemala.
The Fellowship cohort will consist of 8 data journalists who demonstrate an interest in learning Tableau skills and a passion for data-driven journalism about gender quality issues linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
In addition to extensive training, this opportunity includes a complimentary two-year license for Tableau software, ongoing support, access to EM2030’s 2022 SDG Gender Index data and a cash grant to support your work.
Fellows, in turn, are expected to apply their data skills and the EM2030 SDG Gender Index data to develop pieces of data-driven journalism (such as articles, infographics, apps, etc.) about key gender equality issues relevant to their country context.
The fellowship will also provide opportunities to connect with advocates working on gender equality issues in Latin America, from EM2030’s partner organizations La Ruta Pacífica de La Mujeres (Colombia), Asociación Generando Equidad, Liderazgo y Oportunidades (ASOGEN) (Guatemala), and Comité de América Latina y El Caribe para la Defensa de los Derechos de la Mujeres (CLADEM) (Latin America).
All training and meetings will be conducted in Spanish or will have simultaneous interpretation provided.
Applications Open: June 5, 2023
Application Deadline: August 11th, 2023
