Public Media Meet-ups for Every Voice

Public media thrives on diverse voices and shared stories. But navigating the industry's challenges can feel like you're in it alone. That's where our affinity-based virtual meet-ups come in.

From news directors to rising stars, from small station champions to LGBTQ+ and Black journalists leading the charge, we're building bridges between colleagues who share similar passions and experiences.

Find your community, share your struggles and triumphs, and discover solutions together. Dive into our members-only meet-ups, where you can:

Forge lasting connections: Expand your network and build meaningful relationships with fellow journalists who understand your unique perspective.

Share your expertise and grow together: Whether you're a seasoned veteran or just starting out, contribute your knowledge and learn from others' journeys in a supportive environment.

Tackle tough topics and co-create solutions: Discuss the issues shaping public media, from resource development and technology to representation and storytelling ethics, and brainstorm innovative approaches together.

Spark new ideas and cultivate collaboration: Inspire each other to push the boundaries of journalism and create projects that amplify diverse voices.

Whether you're a seasoned news veteran or a budding journalist with a story to tell, there's a place for you in our vibrant community.
