"Ten journalists from around the world are beginning their Journalist Fellowship at the Reuters Institute in October 2021. During their time in Oxford, they will explore the future of journalism through seminars, networking, a personal project of relevance to them, and most importantly through learning from one another's experiences, challenges and strategies to solve them.
[Guatemalan journalist] Claudia Cruz is a product manager with more than 20 years working at the intersection between technology and journalism.
