About Kat Duncan

As the Director of Innovation I run our innovative initiatives, programs and workshops. This includes the RJI Student Innovation Competition, the RJI Professional Fellowship program, the Student Innovation Fellowship program and the Women in Journalism Workshop. I manage partnership projects with local newsrooms, lead the innovation staff & student journalists, teach at the Missouri School of Journalism and produce our monthly web series Innovation in Focus.

Our partnership projects are with organizations and newsrooms who want to work together to build tools, create resources, or test new strategies/ideas in their newsroom. We help newsrooms innovate and the learning we gain from it is shared with the industry. Interested in chatting about a project? Email me! .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

This year one of our partnerships was with The Coalition for Women in Journalism. We launched the JSafe app to help female and marginalized journalists report and deal with harassment, assault and other threats. Download JSafe at: https://www.rjionline.org/jsafe

My career before coming to RJI was in visual departments at newspapers all over the country. I have been a photojournalist, video producer, photo editor and manager. I love my work at RJI because I feel that I get to help create positive change in newsrooms and the industry while supporting journalists all over the country.

Kat Duncan is the Director of Innovation at RJI. She leads innovative initiatives, partnerships and programming for the Reynolds Journalism Institute.
