Journalism Funders Forum (JFF) has launched a new initiative – the Mentorship Programme for philanthropic organisations interested in funding media and journalism.
The JFF Mentorship Programme will place staff from philanthropic foundations that are new to (or have an interest in) the media funding space in meaningful and impactful mentoring relationships with seasoned peers.
The programme will last 6-9 months and will work with experts in a variety of areas, ranging from successful approaches to funding journalism and media to developing strategies on specific areas of interest and who’ll be providing regular support through one-on-one coaching sessions.
According to JFF, ‘It’s a way for us to help shape the media funding sector by exerting a positive influence on the mentees’ careers and improving the entire field by supporting transparency about the industry’s inner workings.’
