How to recruit, develop and advance diverse investigative journalism teams
July 24, 2020 @ 11:30 amFree
Journalists prize investigative work for the impact it has: unearthing risk and damage, holding the powerful to account, changing laws and changing lives. But investigative journalism jobs have long been the province of veteran reporters, usually white and male. As newsrooms commit to diversifying their teams, investigative journalists can better reflect underserved communities that have traditionally been harmed by systemic problems yet to be exposed.
Join moderator Manny Garcia, senior editor for the ProPublica-Texas Tribune Investigative Initiative; Maria Perez, investigative reporter at the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel; and Cheryl W. Thompson, investigative correspondent for NPR and president of Investigative Reporters and Editors, to learn “How to recruit, develop and advance diverse investigative journalism teams.”
This program from the News Leaders Association and the National Press Club Journalism Institute will cover:
– How to mentor, sponsor and network with promising journalists before you’re recruiting
– How to develop journalists to run investigative teams
– How diverse investigative teams shape coverage, build trust & engage community
The first part of this program will be a conversation among the panelists, and the second part of the program will be a Q&A with participants.
