For journalism to stay relevant, newsrooms and the stories they cover must reflect the diversity in their communities. But accomplishing this can often feel like an overwhelming task — do you focus on hiring, culture and process, or editorial guidelines? The answer is: start anywhere.
Join Reynolds Journalism Institute fellows as they share concrete techniques and step-by-step guides for how to build an equitable newsroom and retain journalists of color, while also exploring and presenting strategies for broadening and deepening community coverage.
This session is designed for:
- Leaders interested in building a more inclusive and equitable space in their newsrooms
- Editors interested in tools and fresh ideas for how to deepen community coverage, so it's more inclusive and diverse
- Anyone interested in exploring and shaping the future of journalism
