JAWS hosting in-person and online Diversity Dialogues

Journalism and Women Symposium is excited to be kicking off the JAWS Diversity Dialogues.
These conversations are being held in order to engage the imaginations of JAWS members as the organization considers what being more inclusive could and should look like.
We will be hosting in-person dialogues in cities around the US but are also committed to holding 90-minute digital sessions designed to give you the space to lend perspective no matter where you may be rooted.
Those joining online can choose to connect with us during our 3 general digital dialogues and/or two affinity-based sessions for women of color and women over 55 via Zoom during the week of October 20.
