The International Women’s Media Foundation is thrilled to welcome Round Earth Media (REM) as a new program within its portfolio.
Round Earth Media is reaching global audiences with award-winning multimedia journalism. Our distinctive model partners American early-career and student journalists with their in-country peers. These bi-national teams work together on the same under-reported story, mentored by Round Earth’s veteran journalists. Our support – both financial and personal – begins with story development and continues through the journalistic process to publish or broadcast the stories via media outlets in the United States and in the country where the story is happening. Round Earth journalists receive unprecedented opportunities to expand their skills and their career development. Our reporting projects range from Africa to Latin America to Asia — and cover a breadth of issues including the environment, politics, gender, health, education, art and culture. In 2014, Round Earth Media received a shared Peabody Award, broadcast journalism’s highest honor.
