Newsroom leadership in the age of Black Lives Matter
July 10, 2020 @ 11:30 amFree
The pandemic, economic struggles, and demands for social justice are forcing newsrooms to account for their own failures at diversity, inclusion and representative coverage. Those failures have led to resignations of top leaders at The New York Times, Philadelphia Inquirer, and many other publications.
In a conversation co-hosted by the News Leaders Association and the National Press Club Journalism Institute and moderated by Gannett executive Mizell Stewart III, executive editors Katrice Hardy of the Indianapolis Star and Mary Irby-Jones of The (Jackson) Clarion-Ledger will discuss how they are leading their newsrooms when issues of race and class are at the forefront.
