The Knight-Bagehot Fellowship in Economics and Business Journalism at Columbia Journalism School announced today that Wall Street Journal reporter Dana Mattioli won the WERT Prize for Outstanding Global Business Reporting by a female journalist.

Mattioli won the 2021 WERT Prize for her story, “How Amazon Wins: By Steamrolling Rivals and Partners,” which chronicles how the company uses data and inside information to replicate the products of competitors and then undersell them. As juror Kimi Yoshino, managing editor of The Los Angeles Times, said, “The strength of the story is in the level of detail and in each deeply reported example.”

The WERT Prize honors excellence in comprehensively reported business journalism by a woman that fosters a greater understanding of global business. The WERT Prize was established in 2018 and is funded by a bequest made by the Women’s Economic Round Table and support from the Muriel F. Siebert Foundation and the global management consulting firm McKinsey & Co.

The WERT Prize committee members included Yinka Adegoke, Director for Strategic Initiatives, Rest of World; Jessica Liebman, Global Managing Editor, Insider; and Yoshino.
