The fellows will participate in invitation-only specialized news leadership development sessions throughout the year. The program includes topics like managing up, resolving newsroom conflict, managing change and achieving career goals.

SABEW launched the Xana Fund mid-career leadership program in 2020 in honor of SABEW board member and Quartz Executive Editor Xana Antunes. She was dedicated to ensuring that individual journalists had space to develop their skills despite facing relentless change across the industry. Antunes, who died in January 2020 from cancer, was also focused on the gender gap in business news and the need for more structured opportunities for female business journalists to advance their careers.

This project is supported by a sponsorship from Google and through donations from individuals and Xana’s family. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to the Xana Fund online. Include “The Xana Fund” in the drop-down menu.
