Event description

Description

This year's theme is "Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Behind the Headlines."

What does the diversity of a newsroom have to do with who we see and the stories we hear and how can it impact businesses? Join our guests as we explore why it is important for the news we read, watch, and hear to be diverse, equitable and inclusive. Learn what people think about the news today and how national and local decision-makers are stepping up efforts to ensure the news and those presenting it represent the community they serve.
