ProPublica is pleased to announce that we’ll be continuing the popular Diversity Mentorship Program at the Online News Association conference in New Orleans, Louisiana, in September.
Anyone from an underrepresented group — including people of color, women, LGBTQ people and people with disabilities — is welcome to apply. We’re only considering applicants who are attending ONA and who will be available the morning of Friday, Sept. 13.
The deadline to apply for the Diversity Mentorship Program has been extended to Thursday, Aug. 22. We’ll let you know if you’ve been matched with a mentor by Wednesday, Aug. 28. We’ll do our best to match everyone with a mentor, but bear in mind that space is limited.
For more information about mentors, matching and why we're doing this, check out our post.
