Topics like sexual violence, LGBT issues and mental health are especially challenging for reporters and editors, given our natural concern for language and approach.
We’ll help you avoid common mistakes, and, as part of this discussion, you will get a worksheet with best practices for improving stylebooks and reporting to reflect language preferences and thoughtful news gathering that can be adapted to any tricky-topic issue, including gun violence/control, immigration/border issues and incarceration/social justice.
Note: we work hard to provide audio recordings for most sessions, but were unable to provide it for this session due to technical difficulties. Please find coverage provided by our social team below.
