Are you serious about making sure newsrooms and their work reflects the communities we cover? Especially as COVID-19 disproportionately affects historically marginalized people – and on the cusp of an election impacted by racism?
Earlier this year, the IRE Journal devoted an entire issue to diversity and inclusion in the investigative and data journalism space. It was spurred in part by a panel discussion at our 2019 national conference in Houston focused on helping retain journalists of color and others underrepresented in the field and which went viral on social media for its low attendance.
The IRE Journal issue’s centerpiece resurfaced some of what was missed in that Houston conference panel, and now we’re offering this webinar for journalists to come listen and ask questions of experts on what it’s really like for people working to keep journalism relevant in a changing nation by pushing for more inclusive newsrooms to meet the needs of their audiences and responsibilities as watchdogs.
