This specialized reporting institute on the intersection between business and the environment is available to 20 journalists, who will receive all-expenses-paid fellowships. The deadline to apply for a fellowship is April 26.
The seminar’s other speakers include Susanne Rust, co-author of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Pulitzer-finalist investigation into toxic goods; award-winning environmental reporter Craig Pittman of the St. Petersburg Times; green-transportation expert Jim Motavalli; investigative reporter Russ Choma; and Pulitzer-winning journalist Irene Virag.

Through the generous support of the McCormick Foundation, fellowships cover the full cost of training, lodging, materials and most meals. In addition, fellows receive a $450 stipend to help offset travel and other costs.
This three-day seminar, combined with two follow-up Webinars, will help attendees track stimulus money earmarked for green efforts, cover the growing industry of eco-friendly cars and follow trends in food sustainability. We’ll also host sessions that dig into how to quantify sustainability in a variety of industries including health care, construction, solar, water and coal.

Free “Investigative Business Journalism” workshops with top reporters-turned-profs Alec Klein and Gary Cohn
- May 7 in Portland, Ore.: Join Pulitzer winner Gary Cohn and former Washington Post investigative reporter Alec Klein in this daylong workshop, “Investigative Business Journalism on a Beat,” as they walk you through the steps to successful investigative business stories. These two top reporters-turned-journalism-professors will take you through the investigative story from start to finish: refining and pitching an idea, developing and interviewing sources, plumbing public documents, and organizing and presenting the story effectively in multimedia. Come with an idea for an investigative project, and leave with a story pitch to take back to your editors. The emphasis will be on pursuing investigations while still covering your beat.
- June 9 in Las Vegas: Come an afternoon early for the Investigative Reporters and Editors annual conference and polish your investigative business reporting skills with Alec Klein in this condensed version of “Investigative Business Journalism on a Beat.”
Both free workshops are sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, but you must sign up at BusinessJournalism.org. Space is limited.
