This session for journalism educators and students as well as working journalists will go Under the Hood on “Fault Lines,” the dominant societal elements – such as race, class, gender, generation, geography and sexual orientation – that influence how journalists cover events and how audiences engage with information, and will include strategies to create inclusive content reflecting the communities being covered.
