INN Member Collaborations Leader

The Institute for Nonprofit News is seeking an experienced journalist to help nonprofit newsrooms organize, run and produce news collaborations that increase the public impact of their journalism, and build and strengthen reporting networks that expand the public’s access to high-quality topical and regional coverage.

The collaborations leader serves as a catalyst and coordinator, organizing nonprofit newsrooms that share public interest values and editorial standards and can produce stronger reporting by joining forces and combining their resources.

The leader will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of common news coverage and needs among the INN network, which now has more than 2,200 journalists from more than 250 nonprofit news organizations in North America.

The collaborations leader also is adept at negotiating projects, roles and responsibilities, and engaging journalists in collaborative work.

Nonprofit newsrooms participate heavily in the growing number of high-profile journalism collaborations across the country. At INN, we find the strongest collaborations are driven by the organic needs of our members and a consensus around seeking broader impact from a common coverage area. This bottom-up approach leads to projects that meet the needs of each participating member’s community, while adding to the collective depth and scope of the combined reporting, and often generating greater collective impact that can lead to positive change.

  • Identify and pursue funding to support journalism collaborations.
  • Analyze impact of collaborations and create reports that catalogue the accomplishments of collaborative projects and share best practices with members, funders and the general public.

Justice Reporter

If you are a journalist with a deep curiosity about how the justice system really works in California — from policing to prisons, from civil liberties to courts — you might be the reporter CalMatters seeks to create a new state justice beat.

Questions about whether the state ensures justice for all or inhibits it for some have recently roiled California, from #BlackLivesMatter to #metoo. We envision our new justice reporter would explore legal issues raised and shaped by the actions of the Legislature and governor, the activities of the state attorney general’s office, a network of state prisons housing adults and youth, approaches to addressing crime, evolving law governing civil disputes, and more. This beat would explore the most important but under-covered of California’s three branches of government, with the state Supreme Court topping a system of courts whose decisions influence almost every facet of daily life. 

We are looking for a candidate who is open-minded, scrupulously fair and accurate, and committed to revealing often-complex policy stories through a state lens, vivid human experience and rigorously reported data. 

Responsibilities include: 

  • Report and write longform and short stories and multimedia presentations about California legal issues, including legislation, criminal and civil cases, civil liberties, and trends.
  • Think creatively about formats and tools for communicating justice topics to a broad, statewide audience.
  • Participate in radio shows, public events and live video.
  • Work with our data, visual and social media journalists to create compelling story presentations.
  • Be enterprising — capable of seeing potential stories almost everywhere, and entrepreneurial about forging and owning this beat.

These would be a plus:

  • There is a preference this reporter be based near Sacramento. 
  • Experience covering legal/justice issues, with an understanding of how the court system works and how legislation advances.

CalMatters is a media venture devoted to explaining California’s policies and politics to a statewide audience. We are an expanding and collaborative newsroom, successfully developing a new model for sustainable, intelligent, nonprofit journalism. We’re also committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.
