About the Program

The AI Innovator Collaborative — part of ONA’s AI in Journalism Initiative — is regular gathering for ONA members already using AI in journalism to connect and share ideas.

About the sessions

Meetings will happen virtually once a month throughout 2024 on the second Tuesday, with the exception of September, when a meetup will happen in person at ONA24.

Participants will have access to a Slack channel to connect between meetings.

Who should join

Join the collaborative if you’re an ONA member who is already experimenting with AI tools — even if you’re not an expert! If you’re looking for training to get started with these technologies, sign up for our AI training series — which is included as an ONA membership benefit and open to non-members with a registration fee.
