wed-break Wednesday 1-1:30pm ET Break (+ optional chill & social time) During each long break, we're going to have space for a short meditation or movement session and a couple "birds of a feather" small-group conversations on particular topics. If you'd like to lead one of these short sessions, email [erika@opennews.org](mailto:erika@opennews.org).   y             wed-1pm   2020-07-15T13:00:00 2020-07-15T13:30:00 America/New_York srccon-2020/wed-break
wed-jschool Wednesday 1:30-2:45pm ET What I Wish I’d Learned in J-School Journalism education and curriculum remains focused on the skills needed to enter the industry, rather than how to improve journalism. Despite perennial debate about whether J-School is even necessary, formal education remains an important entry point for aspiring journalists who don't benefit from traditional power structures. So how do we make education better? What should journalism schools be teaching now about objectivity, leadership, stereotypes? Can school prepare new journalists to be resilient and effective advocates for change? What can only be learned outside the classroom? This session is jointly led by student journalists and educators who will later take ideas from this session to leaders of academic programs and current students. Share how your own education prepared or failed you, and imagine a new curriculum for a more diverse and ethical industry.

wed-covid-data Wednesday 1:30-2:45pm ET Covid-19 Data Collection: Roadmapping the Next Big Scramble Now Newsrooms big and small scrambled this past spring to set up Covid-19 data acquisition efforts, covering widely different scopes and approaches. We have a lot of (perhaps necessary?) duplicated efforts to figure out. But we also have a lot to share about our rigs, workflows and data-review tactics, as well as how we collaborate with our reporters & staff on the beat. NYT's news-nerds are happy to share a many details about our efforts around data collection, open-source data, internal apps and roles/responsibilities. We'd love to hear what others have done, too. And we'd like to work on a common roadmap for how we do better next time, like cross-newsroom collaborations and portable project scoping. Tiff Fehr, Miles Watkins       75 minutes       wed-130pm   2020-07-15T13:30:00 2020-07-15T14:45:00 America/New_York srccon-2020/wed-covid-data
wed-trust-newsletters Wednesday 1:30-2:45pm ET Building local community trust through newsletters How can newsletters be used to (re-)build trust in news by local communities and strengthen democratic community engagement? In this session, I would like to discuss the role of newsletters as anchors in new local media, as print subscriptions are dwindling and local papers folding. As a starting point, editorial newsletters written by authentic, trusted voices, can help us reconnect with local communities on a weekly, daily or monthly basis. Used as an engagement tool, it can make local media more interactive and community-driven, by giving readers a platform to discuss local issues. This in turn can strengthen democratic engagement on the neighborhood level and help make communities more resilient and informed.

wed-grassroots-diversity Wednesday 1:30-2:45pm ET Turning a moment into a movement: How to sustain grassroots diversity efforts in your company Attempts to increase representation in news organizations often come from the bottom-up. Sometimes it can be an individual, sometimes it can be several people. That’s how things happened where we work. Scattered efforts led to mixed degrees of success. But coalescing these efforts into a more formal grassroots team has been a game-changer. Our group — the Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) team — started with just a few employees. Since summer 2018, it has grown to include volunteers from most departments, representatives from HR and recruiting, and support from the company founders. With this session we’ll share lessons from our experience, but primarily hear from others what has worked well and what hasn’t. Our goal is for participants to leave this session energized with actionable ideas and plans to increase diversity, inclusion, belonging and equity within their own organizations. If they want to, we hope this will give them the foundation to launch their own DIB initiative or take their current DIB efforts to the next level. We will also compile everyone’s lessons into a short guide that can be shared widely.

wed-compassion Wednesday 3-4pm ET How to be compassionate toward yourself for at least an hour Self-compassion can be really hard. For many people, it’s harder than feeling compassion for other people. You can feel like you don’t deserve it, like being tough on yourself is why you’re successful, like you’ll fall short if you don’t hold yourself to an impossible standard. You might say things to yourself that you would never, ever say to another person. This session is for anyone who is afraid to give themselves a break. I spent six months reading academic research about how self-doubt, regret, and self-compassion affect a person’s ability to achieve their goals, learn from past experiences, and enjoy their life. Spoiler: Berating yourself doesn’t help. We’ll walk through evidence and strategies for building your self-compassion skills.

wed-managers-of-color Wednesday 3-4pm ET Managers of color support group Welcome to management! Do you feel well prepared and supported? Chances are that you were promoted to manager because you performed well as an individual contributor, but few places are equipped to properly train and develop managers to lead teams, make positive change in the workplace and deal with leadership--and managers of color are even more in the minority. Elite Truong, the deputy editor of strategic initiatives at The Washington Post, will lead a one-hour managers’ roundtable with topics including the responsibility of hiring diverse and talented people, professional development for managers and building a support network now that you’re leading a team, ending with plenty of time for sharing and peer Q&A.

wed-opinion-journalism Wednesday 8-9:15pm ET Opinion Journalism: Are There Any Ideas That Are Off-Limits? We talk about opinion pages as a "marketplace of ideas." But who gets to participate in that marketplace, and how? Which ideas need to be amplified, elevated, or uplifted? Are there some ideas that should be de-platformed? Sewell Chan, Bina Venkataraman, Monica Rhor, Karen Attiah       75 minutes       wed-8pm y 2020-07-15T20:00:00 2020-07-15T21:15:00 America/New_York srccon-2020/wed-opinion-journalism
wed-unionizing Wednesday 8-9:15pm ET Let's talk about unionizing: We did it (or we're doing it right now), ask us anything This will be an off-the-record conversation about what it takes to organize a newsroom union. We’ll share our experiences, the steps we took and what’s happening across the country. We’ll then open it up for any questions you want to talk about: why form a union? How does it work? Is it worth it? What can you actually improve? And what mistakes did you make? Jon Schleuss, Erin Petenko, Lauren Aguirre       75 minutes       wed-8pm   2020-07-15T20:00:00 2020-07-15T21:15:00 America/New_York srccon-2020/wed-unionizing
wed-being-there-grief Wednesday 8-9:15pm ET What it can mean to "be there" for grieving colleagues Death and loss are as much a part of life as birth and weddings, yet many organizations lack policies, etiquette, or norms for when someone in their organization is grieving. In this session, we'll tackle ideas for creating policies and norms that could benefit someone faced with death or loss. We'll create a volunteer "sad people board" (of people who have experienced / are experiencing grief) to share feedback about how those ideas would have been welcome or unhelpful for them personally, highlighting that there's often no one right answer to any of this. You will walk away feeling empowered to encourage change within your organization and more confident personally about how to express support for those who lose a loved one.
