Support Groundbreaking Reporting on Women

Director of Development

About Us

The Fuller Project is the global nonprofit newsroom dedicated to groundbreaking journalism about women to raise awareness, expose injustice, and spur accountability. Its vision is journalism that fully represents all women, giving readers The Full Story, and spurring gender equality.  The Fuller Project was founded on the belief that news coverage must represent the views of all individuals. When it does, journalism can fulfill its promise of helping to create a fully informed citizenry. Journalism has the power to inform, to expose abuses of power and human rights, and to inspire urgent action. Yet when the voices, stories, and perspectives of women are disproportionately left out, the result is reporting that reinforces bias.

Through investigative and enterprise reporting about women, and by fostering a committed community of editors, The Fuller Project disrupts bias and redefines traditional news. With deeply sourced newsgathering and vivid storytelling, The Fuller Project works to provide a more nuanced understanding of global, U.S., and local news by incorporating diverse perspectives. It centers its investigative and enterprise journalism on women’s lived experiences, especially those whose stories are most often unheard in mainstream news, to reveal patterns of discrimination and illuminate solutions.
