AAJA’s national convention is headed to Philadelphia from July 26-29 in 2017, and we want your ideas for programming!
This year’s theme is “Rise & Revolutionize.” Our programming will focus on this key question: How can we come together as journalists to transform how we cover communities of color?
We want to create programming that is well-rounded, inspiring and useful to our attendees. In order to do so, we want to hear your ideas and suggestions. What’s the one skill you’ve been wanting to learn? Who is the speaker you’re itching to learn from?
Our mission is to bring together the most talented minds in the media industry to advance newsroom diversity and to promote fair and balanced coverage of the AAPI community.
Nominate yourself, your colleagues, mentors/mentees and role models as speakers! We will accept proposals until January 16, 2017, 5 p.m. PST.
Ready to go? Reserve your room for a discounted AAJA convention rate at the Loews Hotel Philadelphia from July 26-29. Online convention registration will open the week of December 26 at aaja.org.
See you all in Philly!
