Diversity in the newsroom is a critical topic and continues to grow in importance as readers demand transparency and coverage that represents differing viewpoints. Diversity breeds openness of thought, ensures newsrooms represent the communities they serve and that news coverage is balanced and unbiased. Please join us for a fireside chat moderated by LiRon Anderson-Bell, Assistant Professor of Instruction, Advertising and PR at Temple University and Sharyn Flanagan, who now serves as the Interim City Editor at The Philadelphia Tribune and previously served as the publication’s magazine editor. The discussion will delve into the importance of creating a diverse and inclusive newsroom, the role PR professionals and journalists play in shaping unbiased and culturally competent news as well as Sharyn’s experiences at The Philadelphia Tribune, The Associated Press and USA Today.
