As newsrooms seek to repair relationships with communities and become true institutions of belonging, the technology that powers news websites is an often overlooked site of change. In this highly interactive, practical session, panelists will demo features of several content management systems that offer powerful ways to improve inclusivity for newsroom staffers, coverage, and audiences, and participants will gain insight into newsroom product thinkers’ processes for developing, adopting, and iterating on inclusive CMS features.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom product stakeholders looking for CMS tools that support sourcing, engagement, and reader activation strategies
  • Leaders of employee resource groups, affinity groups, and industry organizations seeking to support belonging and inclusion
  • Writers and editors considering website replatforming who would like to learn about CMS features to democratize the publishing process
