Motherhood: Living It in Newsrooms, Covering It in the World

  • Thursday – 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
  • Treme - 2nd Floor | InterContinental
  • #ONA19Motherhood
  • Session audio will be posted

Failure to support and retain mothers in journalism and the deficit in reporting and storytelling resources devoted to the complex social and economic issues facing mothers in America are directly related. If newsrooms are serious about cultivating female leadership and readership, they must both support mothers at their workplace and better cover motherhood for their audiences.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists looking to make coverage of motherhood in America more rigorous
  • Newsrooms that would like to better support women and mothers
  • Anyone interested in confronting anti-mom bias
