SABEW shucks "American" and emphasizes a new, global focus

The Society of American Business Editors and Writers has rebranded, dropping the "American"reference (at least in part in deference to the fact that the association expanded into Canada in 2010) and unveiling a new name (and logo) to represent its wider ambitions, becoming the Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing.
“The logo better communicates what SABEW stands for today,” said executive director Kathleen Graham. “We’ve used visual elements to emphasize our forward-thinking mindset, and digital and global expansion objectives.
SABEW presents an annual business awards competition among professionals and students.
It  recently become more focused on press freedom. To that end, it has issued statements and created events and training highlighting the importance of journalism, including the principle that fact-based reporting is necessary for the health of robust democracies.
