The Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute (RJI) engages journalism professionals, organizations, scholars and communities in programs, tools, resources and workshops aimed at strengthening community-centered journalism through practical innovation.

The Reynolds Journalism Institute Innovation Team is accepting pitches for partnerships in building products, tools and resources for journalism.  

Have an idea that tackles a current need, gap or challenge in journalism? Do you believe in being completely transparent, whether you succeed or fail? Want to share, collaborate and be a part of building something together? 

We want to work with you! 

Guidelines for partnerships: 

- As partners we share the work & the cost of the project, so we expect our partners to put in funding etc as well. This is not a grant or a gift. 

- Partners get to access RJI resources + work with Mizzou students, staff and faculty 

- Our project manager keeps the project on track and successful 

- End product of the partnership should be a resource that is free and useful to journalists  

The Women in Journalism Workshop is an annual workshop that focuses on challenges, accomplishments and issues specific to women in the journalism industry today. We want to help build safer, more diverse and innovative newsrooms to serve our communities worldwide. 

The 2023 sessions will be announced as they are confirmed. If you'd like to see our workshop lineups from the past, they are here

We cannot give refunds if you decide not to attend, but you are welcome to save your registration for a future year or give it to another journalist who would like your spot.
