Washington, D.C. (March 3, 2014) —The 2014 National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Region III Conference will be held March 7-9, 2014 in Charleston, South Carolina. The conference theme is: Diversity, Inclusion and YOU: The New DIY. The event will examine media diversity and the demise of programs created to promote inclusion, with a Roundtable Discussion segment moderated by Dedrick Russell, NABJ Vice President, Print and reporter at WBTV-TV Raycom Media
Today's media professionals must wear many hats—they must be able
to not only write the story, but shoot video and produce. “The DIY Boot Camp: Act Like a Reporter, Think Like a Producer” workshop was designed to help journalists adapt to the changing requirements of their jobs due to the increasing online components of the newsroom.
The workshop, “Leveraging Diversity: Making Yourself More Marketable,” will answer how journalists can make themselves more marketable, while, “Public Relations and Finance” is for those reporters who have transitioned into public relations and marketing.
|This workshop will address what tools a journalist needs to become a marketer for a big business, specifically in the financial arena.|
Students attending the conference will have an opportunity to have their interviewing skills critiqued by actual hiring managers in a "speed dating" style session.
Raycom Media will host the professional workshop, “The Bottom Line: The Cost of Diversity,” moderated by Kerry Charles, anchor, WGHP-TV, Greensboro.
