The Women In Tech Fellowship is about going beyond the surface level of conference news to find stories that matter, exploring how technology intersects with issues of social justice. Fellows report live from the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing and contribute to audio and video broadcasts while pursuing short profiles, breaking news stories and an in-depth feature piece.
Top, emerging journalists were chosen for a month-long reporting fellowship in October 2016. GroundTruth and theCUBE are collaborating on this fellowship with WGBH and Public Radio International’s “Innovation Hub” as a supporting editorial partner.
“We support the mission of GroundTruth in developing a new, more inclusive generation of journalists to dig into under-covered stories about the social implications of technology and share these stories and ideas with the world,” said John Furrier, co-CEO of SiliconANGLE Media.
