Narayan moves to race and equity team at SF Chronicle
San Francisco Chronicle business reporter Shwanika Narayan has moved to its race and equity team.
She will be covering various issues but focusing on workplace discrimination, income inequality, and poverty.
Narayan joined the Chronicle in January 2019 to cover retail and logistics.
She was previously a freelance producer/video journalist at AJ+, Al Jazeera’s digital vertical, where she created news videos on the daily. Prior to that, she freelanced for NBC News, Quartz and Hyphen magazine, primarily writing about Asian American identity.
The business desk at the Chronicle no longer exists but business coverage is still ongoing with the creation of new teams. The culture desk and most of the business news desk merged to create the Transformation and Tech team.
Business coverage is now spread out over that team, as well as Race and Equity, Metro, and Climate Change (mainly PG&E coverage) desks.
