#IRE22 hosts showcase panels 'Banding together for truth' and 'Kicking glass'

IRE is proud to present two showcase panel discussions during the IRE22 conference in Denver, tackling important themes of leadership, cultural reckoning, and the power – and challenge – of newsrooms working together. Both panels will take place Friday, June 24, livestreamed for virtual attendees and recorded for later viewing.

"Kicking Glass" features a powerhouse panel of women in command of some of the most successful newsrooms, brands and investigative teams today.

What were their paths up the ladder to the leadership positions they hold today, and what are the biggest challenges they face now? How do these accomplished journalists of color guide their teams as they cover reckonings outside the building – while examining reckonings inside it? And how do you encourage culture shift among teams without inviting the criticism that you’re more activist than journalist?

Dawn E. Garcia, director of the JSK Journalism Fellowships at Stanford University, will moderate a discussion among these panelists:

  • Marsha Cooke, vice president and executive producer for ESPN Films and 30 for 30
  • Katrice Hardy, executive editor of The Dallas Morning News
  • Erica Henry, vice president/news, CNN U.S.

"Kicking Glass" will take place from 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. MDT in room Colorado B.

"Banding together for truth," will take us behind the scenes of how 16 competing newsrooms teamed up to fight for access to videos of the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection.

How did the media coalition that sued the government come to be, and has it set a precedent for future First Amendment battles? Hear from some of the esteemed journalists who took up the cause as they discuss the power of video to combat the denial of fact and address the question: Are we better together?

Pierre Thomas, chief justice correspondent for ABC News, will moderate a discussion among these panelists:

  • Katelyn Polantz, senior reporter, crime and justice at CNN
  • Charles D. Tobin, attorney and practice leader of the Media and Entertainment Law Group at Ballard Spahr
  • Josh Margolin, chief investigative reporter at ABC News
  • Elyse Samuels, visual forensics video reporter, The Washington Post

"Banding together for truth" is sponsored by ABC News and will take place from 5 - 6:15 p.m. MDT in room Colorado B.
