The ICFJ Global Network

ICFJ’s global network is made up of tens of thousands of journalists who are making a difference through their work. Many have participated directly in our programs or received ICFJ awards, while others have worked with our Knight Fellows and partner networks.

ICFJ offers the journalists in our growing network opportunities to deepen their skills, collaborate with colleagues across borders, build more sustainable news outlets and more.  In response to COVID-19, for example, ICFJ launched the Global Health Crisis Reporting Forum in five languages. The initiative has since evolved into the Pamela Howard Forum on Global Crisis Reporting. Today it is made up of nearly 13,000 members from all over the world. We build, develop and connect the global journalism community through initiatives like this.

On International Women’s Day, Meet Three Inspiring Journalists in ICFJ’s Global Network

March 8, 2022

Srishti Jaswal grew up in a small rural town in the Himalayas where there were no news outlets and no reporters. “In my entire life, nobody had ever seen a journalist before,” she says of her hometown in northern India. “We didn’t even know what journalism was.” 

Today, Jaswal is an award-winning journalist, reporting on controversial issues such as ritual killings despite receiving threats herself – all too common for women journalists in India. She is also a proud member of ICFJ’s global network of journalists, having benefited from ICFJ resources and training.
