Biography

Jennifer Gollan is an Emmy Award-winning reporter for Reveal, where she covers labor issues and corporate malfeasance. She has written about everything from energy companies that dodge accountability for workers’ deaths to lax safety practices that contributed to deadly tire blowouts. Her exposé on Navy shipbuilders that received billions in public money – even after their workers were killed or injured – prompted President Donald Trump to sign a new federal law requiring the Government Accountability Office to examine how the Pentagon monitors workplace safety violations among defense contractors.

Gollan’s work has appeared in The New York Times, The Associated Press, The Guardian US, Politico Magazine and PBS NewsHour. She won a national Emmy Award for a PBS NewsHour piece and was the winner of the Society of American Business Editors and Writers’ Best in Business Award, a National Headliner Award and a two-time Gerald Loeb Award finalist. Gollan’s work has prompted new state laws to crack down on diploma mills and federal regulators to step up enforcement against dangerous companies. She received a master’s degree in journalism from University of Southern California and began her reporting career at the Los Angeles Times. She is based in Reveal's Emeryville, California, office.
