A journalism training

Gatopardo and Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication present Symbiosis, a space for collaboration, professional development, and on-the-ground reporting directed at emerging journalists in the Americas. Together, Gatopardo’s editorial and creative team and Cronkite’s world-class faculty have developed a first-of-its-kind annual program made up of public conversations, specialized workshops and on-site residencies. By helping emerging journalists develop the skills they need to tell our region’s most urgent stories, the program will deepen understanding of shared challenges related to the environment, racial equity, human rights, democracy, and social justice.
