NOW IN LITTAUER 150 (PREVIOUSLY STARR AUDITORIUM)

Join us for a conversation with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists CPL Hauser Visiting Leaders Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, who will examine evolving dynamics in media content creation and dissemination, and business model trends across the media landscape. Which is more influential – an op-ed or a tweet? What is the key to remaining relevant – pursuit of truth or dogma? And with some news organizations shrinking and struggling, what are some of the ways that journalism can increase its chances of thriving?
 
Moderator Kaeti Hinck, 2018-2019 Nieman Fellow, will join Mr. Kristof and Ms. WuDunn in discussing these questions, along with lessons leaders should take away regarding media training, messaging management, and resource allocation.

RSVP

This event is free and open to the public.
