“Journalist” is no longer a direct career path, with innovators now building careers that straddle editorial, business, technology and product lines. Join this workshop to learn how engaged journalism drives editorial and revenue strategies, and about the new generation of leaders fluent in newsroom, business and product.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms that would like to support talent across divisions and silos
  • Leaders who are interested in building experience in multiple media organization nodes
  • Anyone curious about where the profession is headed
