Background: Heather Joslyn joined The Chronicle of Philanthropy in 2001 and currently serves as an assistant managing editor. She helps drive The Chronicle's coverage of job hunting, recruiting, and managing in the nonprofit world. She oversees its annual pullout supplements on technology, continuing education, managing, and diversity in the nonprofit world.
Though she primarily serves as an editor, Joslyn also writes for The Chronicle; topics have included the increasing popularity of graduate-level nonprofit management programs, the shortage of qualified applicants to fill nonprofit leadership roles, and the "glass ceiling" compensation practices that result in women in the field being paid less than their male peers.
Before coming to The Chronicle, Joslyn served as managing editor and arts editor of the Baltimore City Paper (1994 to 2001), and worked at Whittle Communications, in Knoxville, Tenn. (1986 to 1993). She lives in Baltimore, and holds a bachelor's in magazine and history from Syracuse University.
