College Media Association and Orange Media Network at Oregon State University will host a weekend College Media Summit on Diversity and Inclusion Sept. 30-Oct. 1, 2016.
College media students, faculty and staff will be able to discuss common challenges, develop listening and engagement skills, and learn about tools and strategies to help them cover diverse communities.
Members of The Seattle Times team that put together the “Under Our Skin” project will help participants explore ways to report on race and ethnicity, gender, class, disability and LGBTQ issues; bring diverse voices into their own daily reporting; and combat obstacles to fair, inclusive and accurate coverage.
Other speakers include diversity and inclusion professionals, college media advisers, student editors and student activists.
The $99 registration fee ($109 after Sept. 8) includes four meals — Friday dinner and breakfast, lunch and dinner on Saturday. Register here.
