In this session, we’ll share strategies, practices and tools used to guide stations on a journey that aims to flip the script on how we do journalism -- instead of reporting on communities, we report with them and for them. We will also look at ways in which we can begin to measure the impact of sustained community engagement.
This session gives examples of the first steps in what must be an ongoing journey to craft and present more inclusive and interesting playlists.
