Yukari Kane

co-founder and CEO Prison Journalism Project

Yukari Iwatani Kane is a journalist with nearly 20 years of experience, writing mostly about business and technology but also health, food, travel and anything else where she sees a story. The last reporter at the Wall Street Journal to cover Apple under Steve Jobs, Yukari led much of the coverage during this time, including the news about Jobs’s liver transplant. Her work on the beat led to her book Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs, published by Harper Business and translated into seven languages. She teaches at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism. In 2019 Yukari co-founded the Prison Journalism Project (PJP) as a way to empower the men and women who live behind bars through storytelling and journalism. PJP’s goal is to elevate their voices, so they can be a part of the national conversations about criminal justice.
