This conversation will enhance frontline editors’ abilities to oversee daily reporting on violence, trauma, and tragedy. It will provide basic training on managing trauma exposure on staff as well as an opportunity to talk through particular concerns with individual staff and organization-wide issues. We also will discuss who we feature in what ways (pictures, quotes, roles in the stories) to deliver coverage that accurately and honestly reflects the experiences of everyone in our communities.

Your power as an informal leader
You don’t need to have rank and seniority to exert leadership.

Safely reporting from protests and other tense events
