Transparency, Trust and Engagement

In a world of fake news and alternative facts, how do journalists convince readers that the truth (and context) are important? Join ONA South Florida as we talk about transparency, trust in media and social engagement strategies that show our audience how we come up with the content they consume. We'll hear from Jaweed Kaleem, the race and justice reporter at the LA Times; Amy Sherman, a reporter for PolitiFact Florida and Samantha Ragland, a digital content strategist at the Palm Beach Post. You bring your best solutions and we'll bring the food.

This event is generously hosted by the FIU Department of Journalism + Media at the Biscayne Bay campus in North Miami. We'll be in the Mary Anne Wolfe Theater.
