A panel of digital journalists will confront questions of diversity often lost in the new media technology and economy discussion: Who is online? Who is innovating? What’s the environment for entrepreneurs? What’s the history of women and people of color in digital journalism? This roundtable discussion will also take a statistical look at who’s being hired and who’s in charge.
