AI + Transparency: How newsrooms can build and maintain audience trust

By talking publicly about how a newsroom uses AI, journalists can demystify their use of the technology, model a spirit of responsible exploration to their audiences and use it as an opportunity to build trust. But, how, where, and why should your newsroom be disclosing the use of AI tools in your reporting, editing and production processes? Join ONA and Trusting News for a practical training on building trust through transparency about AI use for your journalism. You’ll leave with best practices for explaining your newsroom’s AI policies in a way that builds trust with your community.


Anyone is welcome to attend. Tickets are $25 or free for ONA members. Check your membership status or learn more about the benefits of joining ONA.

Where will the meetup take place?

This event will be hosted on Zoom. For this particular event, you’ll have the best experience if you join via the Zoom app on a desktop or laptop computer so that you can see the presentation on a larger screen. You can also join using the mobile app, although the presentation may be harder to view.

Can I dial in by phone?

We recommend joining from your computer, tablet or phone using the Zoom app. You won’t be able to access the presentation slides, chat and exercises if you’re dialed in via phone only. If you’re unfamiliar with Zoom, we’ll have staff on hand to troubleshoot, and we also suggest checking out the Zoom support site for more help.

Will this event be recorded?

The event will be recorded and made available to registrants at the end of the session.

Will closed captioning be available?

Yes, we will enable Zoom’s closed captioning tool, which now supports closed captioning in both the main room and breakout rooms.

Funding for ONA’s AI in Journalism Initiative is generously provided by Microsoft. To learn more about supporting this AI programming, contact Hanaa Rifaey, Head of Strategic Partnerships, at
