Description

A free leadership workshop for people who build communities of innovators in news

The ONA Local Summit is a free leadership workshop for people who build communities of innovators in news. We’re opening up our flagship workshop for ONA Local group organizers to anyone who wants to learn how to lead innovation in their newsroom and in their city's journalism community.

Expect to walk away with:

  • Skills to lead your news organization in digital evolution and create a culture of innovation, with a special focus on working in smaller newsrooms and news markets

  • Skills to build a community of learning and networking for digital journalists in your city or region

  • Ideas from your peers on issues you’ll face in leading your newsroom in better serving the public, such as building trust, connecting with marginalized communities, and more

  • Connections with other community leaders who are just as passionate about serving their local communities as you are.

What you'll find:

The schedule will be packed with hands-on workshops, discussion groups and practical training on growing your position as a leader in your newsroom, as well as lots of new connections who care as much about strengthening journalism in their city as you do. Our friends at ONA NOLA will help us get a flavor for the city, too.

Good Journalism is Good Organizing
Alicia Bell, Free Press
Organizing is a powerful approach to building relationships and deepening trust, but it’s an approach journalists aren’t always trained in. This session will show journalists how to adapt organizing strategies into their everyday work in order to better share information with community members, learn from people most affected by an issue, collaboratively identify solutions, increase impact and build power.
