Join The Maroon in hosting Time reporter Justin Worland, a fellow with the Energy Policy Institute at the University of Chicago, for a conversation about entering into a career in journalism, what it takes to be successful, and more.

Justin Worland has been covering climate change and the intersection of policy, politics, and society for TIME since 2015. During his career, Worland has worked to improve the climate conversation beyond reporting, speaking frequently to a range of audiences and serving as a founding steering committee member at the Uproot Project, a non-profit organization that works to diversify environmental journalism. The recipient of a number of journalism honors, Worland was named the inaugural Climate Journalist of the Year in 2022 by Covering Climate Now, a non-profit dedicated to improving climate journalism. He also won a 2019 and 2021 SEAL Award in Environmental Journalism in recognition of his effort to bring environmental news and analysis into the public discourse and to elevate our understanding of the connections between complex current events.

 

This event will be held in The Chicago Maroon Office in the basement of Ida Noyes. Dinner will be provided.
