From a friend: Here are some exciting career opportunities at Public Radio International with a focus called “Across Women’s Lives.” The hiring is on a fast track. Please spread the word and contact Michael Skoler if you have any questions.
From: Michael Skoler <email@example.com>
We have 5 positions that we will be hiring in the next few weeks. All will work on an 18-month project called Across Women’s Lives examining how raising the status of women is linked in many ways to improving the lives and well-being of communities. Our focus will be on the developing world, but not exclusively. And we expect to emphasize coverage in India and Africa, but will also tell stories from Latin America, the Middle East and the US.
While these positions are funded through March 1, 2016, I expect to be growing our team over this period with the aim of retaining the talent we attract. The positions are slotted for Boston or Minneapolis, though we can be flexible for the right people. We will also be hiring freelance journalists (radio, video and photo) to do stories for the project, starting immediately, and welcome story pitches.

Story pitches can go to Peter Thomson at The World, our interim editor as we work to hire the project editor: firstname.lastname@example.org<
Folks who need more info on the positions can contact me. I would appreciate help spreading the word to your networks. We are on a fast track, so people should apply in the next week or so. Hires will occur by Nov. 1.
We will also be developing partnerships with news and other organizations with interest in gender status and social equity.
