Bias Breakthrough: How To Strengthen Coverage of Race, Identity and Inequality

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Questions of race, identity, and inequality are at the center of some of today’s most important stories. They also provide the most opportunities for missteps and misunderstandings. How can we best serve our audiences with the richest, most contextual, and most accurate content on these topics? 
2016 JSK Fellows Tonya Mosley and Jenee Desmond-Harris will offer a toolbox for journalists who want to deepen and strengthen their reporting on today’s hottest topics and hardest questions. Their workshop is an immersive course on bias and how it plays out in our work. The workshop is a mix of interactive role play, reflection and examples of bias in media. From there, they look at solutions - providing proven tools to help reporters as they head out into the field reporting on difficult subjects.
