Establishing meaningful values for journalism organizations
We are excited to kick off the ONA Insights conference (Oct. 14–15) with a featured session about our individual and collective values. Join us on site in Philadelphia or remotely Oct. 14, 10 a.m. EDT (14:00 UTC) for a special edition of the “Belonging in the News” series we’ve organized with Vision 25 collaborators. Ashley Alvarado, Vice President of Community Engagement and Strategic Initiatives at Southern California Public Radio, and Martin G. Reynolds, Co-Executive Director of Maynard Institute, will build on a SRCCON conversation about replacing objectivity with actual values to explore how organizations can dive into the deep work of defining values. Attendees will leave the discussion with an understanding that aligning our values with our work not only leads to better journalism but also helps build institutions of belonging in the industry.
Featured sessions at ONA Insights are broader conversations tackling pressing issues for digital journalists, and workshops and breakout sessions throughout the rest of the day build on the themes discussed. Each featured session is pre-recorded and aired online, which means it will be available to all attendees at the scheduled time regardless of the type of pass you hold. If you’re participating in person in Philadelphia, you can choose to watch the morning featured session on your own from your hotel room or home, or join a watch party and facilitated discussion in Wyeth Gallery A&B at the Sonesta Hotel.
