The Collective Work Workshop, led by Carrie Lozano, is aimed at bringing journalists together to collaboration, and share their skill and expertise. Since 2007, the U.C. Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program has hosted a “by invitation only” symposium each spring in honor of the Reva and David Logan Foundation, which endowed the program. The only symposium of its kind in the country, it routinely brings together a veritable “who’s who” of top journalists, law enforcement and government officials to address the critical issues confronting this specialized field. The symposium also unites media executives involved in both non-profit and commercial outlets, as well as media attorneys, academics, major foundations, and philanthropists who support journalism in the public interest."
Carrie Lozano is a Bay-Area based journalist and award-winning documentary filmmaker. She is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and completed a post-graduate fellowship with the Investigative Reporting Program in 2009. She is the project director of the Investigative Reporting Program's "Collective Work," a resource for collaborative investigative reporting and a partner with PBS MediaShift on Collaboration Central, an online guide for collaborative journalism. She is also producing and directing a documentary film about jazz pianist Fred Hersch.
