Is “Fake News” was damaging the art of journalism? The topic was one of many that was discussed during the UNITY Journalists Diversity Caucus held in Washington D.C. at the National Association of Broadcasters Headquarters.
UNITY hosted a timely conversation:”Is fake news pushing diversity off the agenda?”, with 60 fellow journalism leaders and innovators. UNITY convened its fourth annual Diversity Caucus on April 7 at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) headquarters in Washington, D.C.
UNITY: Journalists for Diversity is pleased to announce Ala’a Ibrahim has been named the UNITY 2017 reporting fellow. Ibrahim, who is studying multimedia journalism and business at the University of Texas at Austin, was chosen out of a group of highly qualified and dedicated young journalists from across the country. She will represent UNITY at five annual conferences focused on diversifying newsrooms and the stories they tell.
The fellowship is designed to simulate convergence journalism, technology and cross-cultural communications. It will also provide recipients a chance to apply for positions and internships at some of the country’s best represented job fairs.
The Executive Leadership Program (ELP) is a week-long immersive experience for any professional journalist interested in moving ahead in the workplace and developing the necessary skills to achieve goals small and large. Don’t miss this!
