ProPublica is thrilled to announce the addition of Connor Goodwin as a communications manager. In this role, he will help promote ProPublica’s journalism, journalists and major initiatives through media outreach and organizing events.
Goodwin is also a freelance writer and reporter covering culture, cryptocurrency and all things Nebraska. His writing has appeared in WSJ. Magazine, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, American Prospect and elsewhere. He has been awarded several artist residencies for his fiction writing including Vermont Studio Center.
Goodwin had been working with ProPublica as an events associate and interim communications director. He had previously served as a program officer for Humanities New York, where he produced and managed a variety of statewide discussion-based programs.
“Connor has already played a critical role in expanding the reach of our work and how we engage with readers,” said chief product and brand officer Tyson Evans. “He approaches this work with impressive creativity and rigor, which are hallmarks of this team.”
“I am excited to continue contributing to ProPublica’s impact mission by expanding the reach of our reporting and making our investigations more accessible,” said Goodwin.
ProPublica’s new, unified communications team amplifies the impact of the organization’s work and the importance of our mission through public relations, messaging, and virtual and in-person events. The team is led by Alexis Stephens, who was recently promoted to director of communications. Along with Goodwin, members include Alissandra Calderon, associate director of communications, and Rocio Ortega, events associate.
