In the latest Reuters Institute and the University of Oxford Journalism, Media and Technology Trends and Predictions, almost two-thirds of editors, CEOs and digital leaders surveyed are concerned or extremely concerned about staff burnout. Most survey respondents (73 percent) also expressed concern regarding retention and attraction in the journalism industry given the low rates of pay, pace and the pressures of the modern newsroom. In addition to those findings, 56 percent of those surveyed were concerned about levels of newsroom diversity.
Attendees representing a spectrum of journalism and communications careers including print, broadcast, radio and digital platforms will attend sessions that focus on developing meaningful content, increasing diversity in newsrooms and gaining viewers' trust in this new era of constant misinformation.
The conference will feature an opening networking reception at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, hosted in partnership with the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau's diversity platform, Vibe Cincinnati. Highlights from the weekend-long event include a Q&A session facilitated by award-winning veteran journalist, speaker, author and philanthropist Soledad O'Brien, and a keynote speech given by Jamilah Lemieux at the scholarship jazz brunch hosted by Procter and Gamble. Proceeds from the brunch will benefit the Greater Cincinnati Association of Black Journalists' scholarship fund.
"We are excited to welcome members of the nation's largest organization for journalists of color to the Cincinnati region. Our city has worked tirelessly to enhance our multicultural experience for diverse conference attendees and this time will be no different," said Jason Dunn, group vice president of Diversity Sales and Inclusion for the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Hosting this group and showcasing the best of Cincinnati will continue to elevate our region's reputation throughout the Midwest and the nation. We look forward to showing these journalists all that our great city has to offer."
