Welcome, Reynolds Week 2015 Fellows!

by January 5, 2015

We’re so happy to welcome this year’s 2015 Reynolds Week Fellows to Arizona State University in Phoenix. Over the next three days, these journalists and professors will receive in-depth seminars on a wide variety of topics, ranging from financial statements to data visualization, CEO compensation to the skills editors are seeking from students.

The  Reynolds Week fellows join the 2015 Scripps-Howard Entrepreneurship Institute Fellows, also meeting this week at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication, for two keynote addresses. Monday’s lunchtime keynote speaker is Chiqui Cartagena, vice president of marketing for Univision and the foremost expert on trends concerning Latinos. Every fellow gets an autographed copy of her book, Latino Boom II.

See our Storify on Cartagena’s talk to the groups.

Later Monday, the Reynolds and Scripps-Howard fellows will hear from Elisa Camahort Page, co-founder of BlogHer.
