[RSVP] Luncheon: How New Methods of Engagement can Create a Diverse Journalism Ecosystem that Represents All Communities

This session is sponsored by MacArthur Foundation

This event is presented by MacArthur Foundation

How can journalism organizations find their voices within a crowded media ecosystem? How can we connect with audiences inundated with information? Learn how listening is the key.This panel will discuss how media-making organizations that represent the views and lived experiences of diverse communities are helping reshape journalism by engaging the public in an ongoing series of conversations.

We will explore how technology coupled with in-person engagement opportunities can create a media ecosystem that is more connected, equitable,and offers a wider spectrum of perspectives. These efforts will come to life through the voices of organizations that work both locally and internationally. Each organization is unique and creates journalism and media content that is original, illuminating, engaging, and consequential.
