Emerging Leaders apply grants to build tech and translation capacity

February 14, 2022

INN will provide implementation grants to four members of the Emerging Leaders Council who envisioned projects during last summer’s coaching program. 

Yukari Kane at the Prison Journalism Project will purchase software to amplify the organization’s new audience growth strategy. Nissa Rhee at Borderless Magazine will expand the site’s translation services. Kimberly Griffin at the Mississippi Free Press will lead a tech-stack transition and upgrade to build a more personalized and robust donor experience, and Janeen Jones at the Center for Public Integrity is utilizing the funds to conduct an accessibility audit on CPI’s redesigned website. 

Yukari Kane (Prison Journalism Project), Nissa Rhee (Borderless Magazine), Kimberly Griffin (Mississippi Free Press) and Janeen Jones (Center for Public Integrity) will use implementation grants to build on projects developed during INN’s 2021 Emerging Leaders Council.

INN formed the Emerging Leaders Council in 2017 to build business-side and management skills among the diverse leaders who will grow our field over the next 20 years. To date, 45 individuals have participated in four cohorts who work together to strengthen their ideas. 

Funding for the Emerging Leaders Council is provided by Jonathan Logan Family Foundation, Knight Foundation, and other general support funders of INN programs. The current round of implementation grants totals $18,000.

INN will open a new round of applications in March.
