This session is sponsored by ProPublica

For the sixth consecutive year, ProPublica is hosting the Diversity Mentorship Event at ONA, which is designed to connect people from communities that are historically underrepresented in journalism with people at the top of the field.

Professional networks are crucial to advancing a journalist’s career. The goal of this event is to help promising journalists build these networks in order to make the industry more inclusive.

Past mentors have included newsroom leaders, startup founders, highly accomplished reporters, producers, designers, editors and more.

Mentees are paired with mentors based on their backgrounds, challenges and interests in journalism. Mentees also have an opportunity to network with one another.

Applications are closed for this event, and links for the programming have been send to mentors and mentees. If you don't have your link, please reach out to

This event is generously supported by ProPublica.
