Henríquez hired at NYT

Charo HenriquezThe New York Times has tapped digital media pro Charo Henríquez to join its new training unit aimed at making the paper’s entire newsroom learn how to “think digital” for more effective storytelling.

As Senior Editor of Digital Storytelling and Training, Henríquez will be part of the Digital Transition team that is “experimenting with new ways to interact with readers.”

“I see working with a team that develops ways to train and grow new digital skills and strategies in journalists as a big opportunity to have an impact, not just at the Times, but in our industry,” Henríquez tells Media Moves.

“Seeing how the Digital Transition team at the Times values that and appreciates my experience and background is a wonderful thing. I’m a huge advocate for inclusion of underrepresented people in media leadership. If this opportunity gives others visibility of someone who looks and speaks like them, that in itself is a win. Representation matters.”

Before joining the NYT, Henríquez spent a year as an independent digital media consultant doing training, coaching and mentorship programs for journalists.

She was previously the Executive Digital Editor for People en Español from 2015 to 2016. Before that, she was the Innovation Editor at GFR Media, working on editorial innovation projects for El Nuevo Día and Primera Hora websites in Puerto Rico.
