No turf, no competition. At the Kiplinger Program, we view journalism membership organizations and other university fellowships as potential partners – not competitors. We all share the same goal: equipping today’s journalists with the tools and tactics they need to succeed in a rapidly changing news landscape. Working together, the Kiplinger Program and other journalism groups can be more nimble and thorough in meeting the evolving needs of reporters, editors, producers and multimedia journalists.
Our primary partnerships involve two journalism groups and a university:
- Investigative Reporters and Editors: The Kiplinger Program typically provides training annually at two or three IRE Better Watchdog Workshops. Sessions have been held in Johnson City, Tenn.; Memphis; Salt Lake City; Scranton, Pa.; and Toronto. Kiplinger also is a routine presenter at IRE national conferences.
- Society of Professional Journalists: As a sponsor and collaborator on SPJ JournCamp regional workshops, the Kiplinger Program provides funding and training for one or two events annually. Kiplinger has partnered with SPJ for camps in San Diego, Miami and New York City.
- Ohio State University: The university has housed the program since its inception. The Kiplinger Program is based in University Communications. Ohio State provides office space, administrative support, creative marketing assistance and other services for the program.
