Working in Media with a Disability

Date TBA

How does living with a disability shape your experience as a member of the media? In this session, journalists from all corners of the industry will discuss navigating their own physical and neurological disabilities in a competitive landscape that prizes speed, sound-bites, and appearance above nearly everything else. What do you do when you're not "TV-ready?" Topics will include disclosure, how to work effectively with HR and management, disability representation, and diversity in newsrooms.
