Join this essential workshop and learn from industry leaders how approaching editorial, HR, communications and other work processes from a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) lens not only provides space for transformative organizational change, but also deepens community connections and supports longer-term, sustainable growth models.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom leaders developing and implementing DEI programs
  • Digital news professionals who want their workplaces to better reflect their values
  • Everyone interested in building more diverse, equitable and inclusive institutions
