Understanding Public and Private Pensions
Take a deep dive into all facets of pension issues at a four-day training program for journalists conducted by the National Press Foundation. During the training, journalists will learn about the state of public and private pensions; pension investment and transparency; workforce and retirement issues; pension modernization and reforms; pension management and debt; and the impact of pension issues on retirees.
The training will be held Dec. 2-5 in Washington, D.C.
The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues. This program is for U.S.-based journalists only.
Support for this program is provided by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation and the National Public Pension Coalition.
