Has anything really changed in newsrooms after protests?

    October 23, 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

    After a summer of protests about police brutality and racial injustice, news organizations vowed to improve coverage of diverse communities and to step up their own long-promised efforts to diversify newsrooms and leadership.

    Join the National Press Club Journalism Institute and the National Press Club Communicators Committee for a candid conversation with Amanda Barrett, deputy managing editor at AP; Rene Sanchez, editor and senior vice president at the Star Tribune; and Dorothy Tucker, president of the National Association of Black Journalists. Michael McCarter, USA Today managing editor of standards, ethics and inclusion, will moderate.

    Registration is open for this program, which will take place from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm EDT on Friday, October 23.

    The speakers will explore the following questions:

    • Has anything really changed?
    • How are newsrooms communicating internally and externally about their efforts?
    • What’s next for newsrooms pushing toward equity?
