Senior Editor for Recruitment and Training, The Washington Post
Carla Broyles is the senior editor for recruiting and training at The Washington Post. Carla joined The Post in 1999, and her work as deputy news editor, graphics editor, art director and staff writer means that she has worked with just about every department in the newsroom. An award-winning designer who has created beautiful, thoughtful visual reports on deadline, Carla has been recognized for her work on many big stories, including the fall of Enron; the Attack on America commemorative section — a major project that included a collection of keepsakes from each of the Pentagon families who lost a loved one on 9/11; the Katharine Graham funeral pages; and the Iraq War. Most recently, she has been editor of the National Weekly edition, which showcases some of the newsroom’s finest work in more than 35 newspapers around the country.
In 2009, she was awarded a Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University, where she studied how images in the media affect the way ethnic communities are represented and regarded. For many years, she volunteered with The Post’s Young Journalists Development Program, reviving area high school newspapers, mentoring young journalists and championing diversity. She has also taught design as an adjunct professor at Howard University.
