Tableau Foundation and Equal Measures 2030 (EM2030) have joined together to launch a Fellowship for Data Journalists. Applications are open to data journalists from India and Kenya who identify as women or gender minorities.

The Fellowship cohort will consist of up to 15 data journalists who demonstrate an interest in learning Tableau skills and a passion for data-driven journalism about gender quality issues linked to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In addition to extensive training, this opportunity includes a complimentary two-year license for Tableau software, ongoing mentoring and support, access to EM2030’s SDG Gender Index data and a $1,500 cash grant to support your work.

Fellows, in turn, are expected to apply their data skills and the EM2030 SDG Gender Index data to develop pieces of data-driven journalism (such as articles, infographics, apps, etc.) about key gender equality issues relevant to their country context.

Further information about the Data Journalist Fellows program can be found at

Applications Open: December 18, 2020
Application Deadline: January 31, 2021 at midnight EST
