  • Jennifer LaFleur, The Investigative Reporting Workshop

Managing a data project presents challenges for any editor. No matter your comfort level with data, this half-day workshop will give you the foundation you need to help make sure your reporters aren’t running with scissors or spinning their wheels on data projects. Veteran editor Jennifer LaFleur of The Investigative Reporting Workshop will guide you through the ins and outs of data journalism from an editor’s point of view, including:

  • How to help reporters find focus for their data stories
  • Being skeptical of data and finding potential pitfalls
  • Verifying analyses and bulletproofing data stories and apps
  • Using data to find human sources and characters for stories
  • Planning the best data workflows for your newsroom

No data experience is necessary for this workshop. Editors/producers and those interested in newsroom management are welcome. Please bring your own laptop.

Pre-registration is required and seating is very limited to allow for social distancing.
