As many newsrooms have been forced to literally decentralize, management styles must be rethought. Join this important conversation and learn from the best practices from the team at OpenNews, City Bureau and WUSA-TV, which will share how to provide mutual aid and knowledge-sharing and create a healthy work-from-home culture while remaining focused, reliable and collaborative.

This session is designed for:

  • Managers struggling to find healthy collaboration while physically distant
  • Anyone interested in the implications of longer term distributed workplaces
  • Leaders seeking to pivot and adjust as home conditions extend indefinitely
