Bernice Yeung covers business with a focus on labor and employment for ProPublica. Previously, she was a reporter with Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting where her work examined issues related to violence against women, immigration, environmental health and the workplace.
She was a member of the national Emmy-nominated Rape in the Fields reporting team, which investigated the sexual assault of immigrant farmworkers. The project won an Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Award and a Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Award and was a finalist for the Goldsmith Prize for Investigative Reporting. Yeung also was the lead reporter for the national Emmy-nominated Rape on the Night Shift team, which examined sexual violence against female janitors. That work won an Investigative Reporters and Editors Award, the Society of Professional Journalists Sigma Delta Chi Award for investigative journalism, and the Third Coast/Richard H. Driehaus Foundation Competition. Those projects led to her first book, In a Day's Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America's Most Vulnerable Workers (The New Press, 2018).
