Google and ICFJ Launch MENA Training

The first Google News Initiative launched this this week with a large-scale effort to offer digital skills training to thousands of journalists across the MENA region. In partnership with the International Center for Journalists, the training series will focus on digital tools to gather and source information, enhance trust and verification and support data-driven journalism and immersive storytelling. The program will take place over the next year and will see 4,000 journalists trained in six countries, including the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan and Tunisia.
