We are pleased to announce that MVJ President Russell Midori has been selected to join the Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program at Columbia Journalism School as a fellow for 2022.
The Sulzberger Executive Leadership Program, which had its first class in 2005, is designed to train leaders of the world’s most respected news organizations and promising media start-ups to lead innovation and solve strategic business challenges in times of rapid transformation, uncertainty and opportunity. Each fellow is asked to outline a project they will undertake during the program’s four months that will benefit their organization in the near future.
As part of his participation in the class, Midori will be designing “a systematic method to identify and recruit large numbers of eligible members,” who will then gain access to MVJ’s resources and advocacy efforts. His project will help MVJ grow and support an ever-larger community of veterans in years to come.
Midori’s time as a Sulzberger Fellow will begin on January 3, 2022 with two intensive weeks at Columbia Journalism School and will end the week of May 23. For more information on the program, see Columbia Journalism School’s announcement below.
