South Asian Journalists Association Convention

This year, as the South Asian Journalists Association celebrates its 20th anniversary, members old and new are invited to take part in a one-of-a-kind  journalism convention that promises to examine the issues that matter the most to working journalists both in and out of the South Asian diaspora.

Join us for a day of discussion, debate, and networking at the 2014 SAJA@20 convention on Saturday, October 11th in New York, followed by a special evening awards ceremony and reception.

Panel 1pm-2pm The Road Less Taken: Unconventional Paths to Journalism

Not all journalism career paths are linear. Journalists who started out in other fields discuss the mid-career transitions that brought them into the world of media-- and share their tips on breaking into the industry.

  • Wajahat Ali, co-host of “The Stream” on Al Jazeera America 
  • Elizabeth Segran, contributing writer at Fast Company, Foreign Affairs and The Atlantic
  • Devi Nampiaparampil, physician, researcher and professor at NYU School of Medicine
