Transitions into new technologies and platforms must be approached from both a business and editorial perspective, and must include and reflect a variety of voices at every step in the process. Join the Alley team for a panel discussion about bringing your entire newsroom into the process, democratizing the CMS, and some of the best practices we’ve learned along the way.

This session is designed for:

  • Journalists and newsroom leaders preparing to adapt to new technologies and learn best practices for training their teams on a new CMS
  • Newsrooms leaders and team members interested in learning more about editorial workflows and best practices in the CMS
  • Anyone interested in discussing how interface choices and editorial workflow tools can support or hinder equity and inclusion efforts.
  • Journalists who want to learn how and why they should advocate for inclusive features and tools in their editorial products
