Bernice Yeung is managing editor of Berkeley Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program.
Previously, she was a reporter for ProPublica focusing on labor and employment. In 2020, Yeung was a member of a reporting team that covered the impact of COVID-19 on meatpacking workers, a project that was honored with a George Polk Award.
As a reporter with Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting, she collaborated with the IRP to produce Rape in the Fields (2013) and Rape on the Night Shift (2015), two award-winning, multi-platform projects that examined on-the-job sexual violence against immigrant farmworkers and night-shift janitors.
Those projects led to Yeung’s first book, In a Day’s Work: The Fight to End Sexual Violence Against America’s Most Vulnerable Workers (The New Press, 2018), which received the PEN America/John Galbraith Award for Nonfiction and was a finalist for the 2019 Pulitzer Prize.
