This event is presented by First Draft
First Draft has developed a year-long strategy to support journalists across the US in building resilience in an age of information disorder. Join the team for drinks and discussion around some of the most urgent, evolving challenges facing newsrooms today as we all prepare to cover another round of extraordinary elections, culminating in the U.S. presidential vote in November, 2020.
Whatever your beat, from business to lifestyle to breaking news, the threat of online disinformation and the tactics of deliberate media manipulation have become increasingly present and complex to navigate. We're in this together and it is happening, now. This informal event will take a moment to acknowledge and celebrate accurate, responsible, impactful journalism, and dive in to the opportunities and proven impact of working together.
First Draft exists to help those on the frontline of reporting, providing practical guidance and training that is informed by ongoing research. Skills, tools and recommendations are continuously tested and revised with the help of partners around the world, as part of First Draft's pioneering CrossCheck network. Join us to hear more about how CrossCheck will connect newsrooms across the US in the coming months, how to access free workshops and webinars, and invitations to regional meet-ups and live simulation training events, plus ongoing support and updates that are tailored to your individual needs and existing expertise.
Most importantly, join us to have your say. Collaboration only becomes more than just a buzzword by the people involved and the realistic, actionable ideas that are shared.
