As stories involving race and social justice dominate the front pages and lead stories, how are newsrooms pivoting to become better equipped to cover this topic?
How are news media organizations adjusting their teams to better cover these stories? How are newsrooms addressing their own institutional racism? And how should we be approaching the idea of objectivity?
This webinar, hosted by the Washington Press Club Foundation and presented specifically for current and former journalism students, will discuss the challenges of appropriately covering the story of the day plus how news outlets are looking to break free of outdated narratives to better reflect the full diversity of their audience. Most importantly, we’ll discuss how you can prepare yourself to be part of the solution to these changing expectations.
