Executive Leadership Program accepting applications


Apply to the Executive Leadership Program by February 3, 2017

The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is a week-long immersive experience for any professional journalist interested in moving ahead in the workplace and developing the necessary skills to achieve goals small and large. ELP 2017 has designed a program that is challenging, practical and life-changing and is recommended for anyone with four or more years of experience in a media organization. The program explores the responsibilities and challenges of working in media and examines how cultural values come into play in newsroom dynamics.

Led by professional career coaches and executives, participants will explore a variety of topics in a small, nurturing environment, including:

  • Defining success
  • Effective negotiation
  • Solving unstructured problems
  • Conquering excuses
  • Dealing with inequality, pressure and politics
  • Work-life balance

The 2017 Executive Leadership Program will be held at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in New York City from March 28 – April 1, 2017. Participants are responsible for their own transportation as well as for their accommodations during the program. Tuition for ELP is $1,250 for AAJA members and $1,500 for non-members.
