Corinne Chin

Corinne Chin is a Senior Video Journalist at The Seattle Times and the founder and leader of the newsroom’s Diversity & Inclusion Task Force. Through late 2021, she is working as a Senior Video Producer for CNN's As Equals, a new vertical focusing on global gender equality. As a storyteller, Corinne amplifies underrepresented voices through innovative online video projects like Beyond the Border, a series of visual stories exploring immigration and deportation supported by the International Women’s Media Foundation and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting; and Under Our Skin, an interactive documentary exploring the words we use – and misuse – to talk about race in America. Her work has been recognized by the Online News Association, Radio Television Digital News Association (National Edward R. Murrow Awards), NPPA Best of Photojournalism, Pictures of the Year International, Northwest Emmys and more. Corinne is a graduate of the Poynter Leadership Academy for Women, the Poynter-NABJ Leadership Academy for Diversity, the ASNE Emerging Leaders Institute and the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University (MSJ and BSJ). She is a co-director of the Asian American Journalists Association’s affinity group Women and Non-Binary Voices, and she is a past president of AAJA Seattle. "Between a pandemic, racist violence, protests and an insurrection, the past year has been a wakeup call: Most news organizations in the U.S. are not prepared to support the safety needs of journalists in the field. Over the course of this unprecedented year, I've found myself in the role of de facto safety advisor to colleagues and peers too many times — all because I had completed a four-day HEFAT course through a previous IWMF fellowship. I'm humbled to be chosen to help expand the pool of knowledge that can support journalists to do their best reporting in the face of safety concerns."
