New York, NY (June 13, 2018)—The Yale School of Management and the American Society of Magazine Editors are pleased to announce that Amy Nordrum, News Editor at IEEE Spectrum, will receive the 2018 ASME scholarship to the Yale Publishing Course “Leadership Strategies in Magazine and Digital Media” at Yale University.

Nordrum joined IEEE Spectrum in 2016 as an associate editor. Passionate about science journalism and audience development, Nordrum straddles the creative and business realms of publishing. She balances her own editorial responsibilities with leading a network of freelancers, managing internal budgets and pursuing new methods of monetization.

Nordrum has used her unique position at the organization to strengthen IEEE Spectrum’s social media presence, match editorial content with advertiser needs and pursue new sponsorship opportunities. Most recently, she developed a prominent content series that, as described by IEEE Spectrum editorial director, digital, Harry Goldstein, “charts the state of play in the emerging 5G telecommunications space.”

In nominating Nordrum for the ASME scholarship, Goldstein praised her initiative and creative thinking: “Since joining Spectrum three years ago, Amy has been a change agent, deftly combining sharp reporting and science writing skills with creative experiments aimed at increasing our revenue and our reach.”

Tina C. Weiner, Yale Publishing Course director adds: “We were extremely impressed with Amy’s passion as a journalist and her desire to build and expand IEEE Spectrum’s news operation.”

As the ASME scholarship winner, Nordrum will join a select group of publishing industry leaders in the week-long Yale Publishing Course, offered through the Yale School of Management. The program is one of the most prestigious professional development courses for the publishing industry, combining industry practitioners with core management training. A highly interactive, educational experience, it is one of the only programs designed for international mid-level to senior publishing professionals.

The week-long course will include lectures and workshops from distinguished Yale School of Management faculty and innovative industry leaders, including Michael Clinton and Joanna Coles, Hearst Magazines; Maya Draisin, WIRED; Jon Hart, NPR; Cindi Leive; and Anne Sachs, Thrive Global.
