Ethics and transparency

Workshop ethics policies

Transparency: The Workshop is committed to operating in a transparent, open fashion that other news organizations can use as a model. We believe transparency will foster more credibility for our journalistic projects and help create confidence on the part of our partners and our funders. To that end, we will provide disclosure of our operations and practices beyond that which is required by law or custom.

Journalistic ethics: High-quality journalism devoted to providing oversight of powerful public and private institutions is vital to a free society. We define “high-quality” to include not only excellent tradecraft, but also excellence in decision-making that reflects the ideals of transparency and accountability to all our stakeholders.

Financial disclosures

The Workshop does not file a Form 990 because it is part of American University. We do, however, disclose information about our finances, including executive compensation.
