Co-founder Natalia Viana shares insights into what it’s like to work with a majority-female investigative team in Brazil.
Agência Pública is a women-led investigative journalism agency from Brazil, founded in 2011 by three Brazilian journalists, with the aim to run independent investigations.
The agency is funded by donations and grants, and its reports are published under the Creative Commons license.
The work of Pública is mostly focused on issues around the Amazon, mega events such as the World Cup, and Brazilian politics. This year, Agência Pública will be running a fellowship for international journalists covering human rights violations around the Olympics in Rio.
