We are incredibly proud to announce that WABJ has been named a finalist for the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) 2022 Professional Chapter of the Year. This recognition is a result of our members’ exceptional engagement and continued support, which has made WABJ more vibrant.
The other finalists are Chicago Association of Black Journalists, South Florida Association of Black Journalists and Iowa Association of Black Journalists. The winner will be announced at next month’s joint NABJ/NAHJ Convention & Career Fair in Las Vegas.
WABJ also congratulates member Robin Turner, VP of Training, Culture & Community at Dow Jones, on being the recipient of NABJ’s 2022 Ida B. Wells Award. Ms. Turner, a longtime media diversity advocate, has impacted the careers of several journalists of color nationwide, and we’re thrilled that NABJ is recognizing her work.
