The New York Times is working on a new journalism initiative, “Headway,” focusing on a range of economic, social, health, infrastructural and environmental problems.
Annually, Headway will produce 10 to 12 deeply researched, visually ambitious, data-rich projects that look beyond the 24-hour news and election cycles. An online public square is also in the making focused on community-building, transparency, engagement, debate and data dissemination.
Currently, the Times is hiring for a lead editor.
Michael Kimmelman, Headway’s founder, will serve as editor-at-large.
