Are you curious about a career in journalism? Join us for a lunchtime Q&A session with Jina Moore, freelance journalist, as she talks about her career journey. Ms. Moore has reported from more than 30 countries around the world, for magazines, newspapers and radio. Based for the last decade in East Africa, she was most recently the East Africa Bureau Chief for the New York Times. She has also written for The New Yorker, The Atlantic, the Boston Review, Newsweek, Foreign Policy, the Christian Science Monitor, and BBC’s The World. As the Global Women’s Rights reporter and senior foreign correspondent at BuzzFeed News, Ms. Moore covered Ebola in West Africa, the kidnapping by Boko Haram of Nigeria’s “Chibok girls,” bride trafficking in Cambodia, gender-based violence against refugees fleeing through Europe, and more.

Her work has received many honors, including the Elizabeth Neuffer Gold Medal, from the United Nations Correspondents Association, the Mirror Award from the SI Newhouse School of Journalism, and a Fulbright Fellowship. A 2009 Ochberg Fellow of the Dart Center on Journalism and Trauma at Columbia University, Ms. Moore now directs a regional initiative to support East African reporters in trauma journalism.

This event is co-sponsored by the Writers’ Centre, CIPE, the Literature major, the Dean of Faculty’s Office and the Humanities division. Lunch will be provided.
