Coping with the stress and trauma of journalism, using our EAP benefit

Gwen will also focus on the effects of stress, trauma and burnout for journalists.
Measure the impact of your newsroom’s best journalism
The Detroit Free Press proves its worth to its subscribers and its community every year with its annual Community impact Report. In this 30-minute workshop, executive editor Anjanette Delgado will explain how the Freep tracks the results of its work — the real-world change that happens as a result of their journalism (law changes, government investigations, arrests, prison releases, lawsuits, settlements, amnesty, community activation, etc.) — so it can publish the comprehensive year-end report. The Community Impact Report isn’t just a celebration of what our journalism achieved. It’s a huge help in retaining existing subscribers and attracting new ones.

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

From guiding probing investigative projects to introducing a new pay model to staging a marathon, The Free Press team will share how it sizes up and capitalizes on big opportunities. Hosted by executive editor Peter Bhatia and senior news director/digital Anjanette Delgado.
Diversifying our readership, content and workforce
All 10 of our active Table Stakes challenges are, in their own ways, designed to help us diversity our staff, our content and our customer base. Rochester’s work over the last year gives us a sturdy platform on which to build. In this conversation, we looked at what Rochester achieved, what obstacles they still face and how any of the other 10 challenges might lead to our next big breakthrough in pursuit of diversity and inclusion.
