Join legendary journalist and news anchor María Elena Salinas live in conversation with Twitter’s Niketa Patel.

A figure of rare credibility in American media, Salinas served more than 30 years behind Noticiero Univision’s anchor desk, interviewing presidents and pop stars and corresponding from war zones and political conventions. Now an independent journalist and CBS News correspondent, she remains uniquely qualified to comment on our current moment of political violence and social upheaval.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsroom leaders seeking structures to cover a combined election-pandemic-recession-revolution
  • Journalists looking to build a durable career in the public interest
  • Anyone trying to place 2020 in historical and continental context
