ELP is a program available exclusively to AAJA members designed to help Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) journalists develop the skills required to become newsroom leaders and executives.  This multi-day program helps participants gain clarity on career goals, recognize strengths, identify needed improvement areas and acquire the needed skills to bring those goals to life. “As demographic trends change, ELP is more vital than ever,” says AAJA National President Paul Cheung. “We need more news leaders with diverse backgrounds and perspectives.”
