Ethics conference in Wisconsin, anyone?

Ethics conference in Wisconsin, anyone?

On April 24, 2020, the Center for Journalism Ethics will host its 12th annual journalism ethics conference at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery in Madison, Wisc. Titled “Journalism Ethics & The Crisis in Local News,” this conference will bring together news media professionals, non-profit news leaders, media innovators, academics, students and the public to address the current crisis in local journalism with special attention to media ethics.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of the factors driving the current crisis as well as concrete ideas for strengthening and protecting local journalism. The Center is also offering travel stipends, providing a way for local news journalists and editors from around the country to attend and engage with the critical issues facing their communities and newsrooms.

CNPA members: The organizers seek up to 10 who might attend with a $1,000 stipend. They want the group of journalists to all be focused on local news in a meaningful way and they want the group to be diverse across such things as:

  • Race, ethnicity, gender and age
  • Market size
  • Medium (print/online, radio, TV)
  • Legacy newsrooms, startups, community publishers, ethnic press, etc.

Is this you? Want to be considered? Please email us this week and we’ll relay your interest to the organizers.
