Sharing is caring — and it’s no different at CAMP.
Whether it’s a pen during a workshop, coffees before early morning sessions or a tasty meal at a nearby diner, the annual Conference and Mentoring Project (CAMP) is a time when things are freely shared.
We especially love sharing rides and hotel rooms. A list is available for those looking for a ride or a roomie, or for those with a room or car to share.
And we’ve shared a lot of stories and advice over the years at CAMP, including:
- Thoughts from the late Dori Maynard on gender, race and journalism;
- A look at politics and feminism from legend Gloria Steinem;
- And countless workshops where journalists share their strengths to empower others — whether it’s new media skills or interviewing techniques.
At CAMP this year, we’ll be sharing:
- Tales and lessons learned from covering recent high-profile shootings in Dallas, Orlando and elsewhere;
- Perspectives from Muslim-American journalists in an age of ISIS and Islamophobia;
- Practical advice for overcoming workplace discrimination;
- Financing planning advice for journalists at all stages of their career;
- How to build trust with sources;
- Books! Lots and lots of books.
