Reimagining Business Journalism
April 20 @ 12:00 pm
The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted labour markets globally. Housing affordability, precarious work, stagnant wages, social isolation, labour inequity and the drive to automation, are some of the major challenges facing the modern employee.
On April 20, Reimagining Business Journalism explores how newsrooms are rethinking their business coverage to reflect the post-COVID economy and ensure relevance among a new generation of younger, more diverse readers. The Canadian Journalism Foundation welcomes a panel of thought leaders in business journalism to share their insights on the future of industry coverage. Featured speakers are Anupreeta Das, finance editor at The New York Times, Anne Gaviola, senior digital broadcast journalist at Global News, and Rita Trichur, senior business writer and columnist, The Globe and Mail. Leading this discussion is Christine Dobby, business reporter, Toronto Star.
