Our Under the Hood sessions offer a deep dive into bold ideas led by newsrooms of all types.
In this unconventional format, you’ll get lightning talks on five projects and studies that are looking at our polarized electorate and are working to bridge the sharp political divide. These projects have taken aim at connecting members of their communities to generate a better collective understanding of the issues, or researching how people consume news.
After the lightning talks, you can choose your own adventure and pick one of the projects that piques your interest for a deeper dive.
