The White House News Photographers Association (WHNPA) recently announced that it has selected Reuters Senior Photographer Larry Downing to receive its 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award for his exceptional coverage of the White House dating back to 1978 and spanning 6 U.S. presidencies. This is the first time a Reuters photographer has been recognized for this award.
Larry started covering the White House while Jimmy Carter was president, working for U.P.I. and then Newsweek Magazine before joining Reuters in 1997.
Over the course of his career, his reputation and access has enabled him to document countless historic events and people. As Larry remembers in his Wider Image profile, he was even included in a secret Air Force One trip to Iraq with U.S. President George W. Bush to surprise U.S. combat troops one Thanksgiving.

Thomson Reuters Foundation CEO Monique Villa has been named among the top 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics by the Ethisphere Institute, the global leader in defining and advancing the standards of ethical business practices.
The annual award recognizes individuals who have made a significant impact in the world of business ethics and compliance. Monique moved up in the ranking this year to #37 and was honored for her commitment to fight modern-day slavery and empower women worldwide.
As the Founder of Trust Women, Monique is the driving force behind several global efforts to advance ethical business practices. Trust Women has now become a global movement to boost women’s rights and to fight slavery worldwide. This year’s annual conference brought together over 550 delegates from 55 countries worldwide.
As a direct result of the Trust Women conference, in 2012, alongside Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr., Monique launched a U.S. financial working group to encourage some of the biggest financial institutions in the USA to contribute to the fight against human trafficking. Specialized NGOs have designed red flags to identify the financial footprint left by human traffickers and slavers. Today, these major banks have agreed to share suspicious data from their clients’ credit cards with law enforcement agencies.
This powerful collaboration has already led to an increase in the number of suspicious activities being reported to the New York District Attorney and could help thousands of individuals. The Thomson Reuters Foundation will now replicate this initiative in Europe with Europol.
Other actions taken at the Trust Women Conference include: (more…)
For the third consecutive year, Thomson Reuters has earned a perfect 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI), a U.S. national benchmarking survey and report on corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) workplace equality.
As a result, we were also recognized among the 2015 Best Places to Work.
