The Inclusion Challenge: Working Toward Solutions

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Presented by the National Press Photographers Association

This session, moderated by Akili Ramsess, NPPA's executive director, is for all visual storytellers, photojournalists, multimedia journalists, online journalists, freelancers—everyone in the business.

Visual leaders discuss how some organizations are working on ways to solve the inclusion challenge, especially with the under-representation of women and people of color in photojournalism. See the appalling stats in this Vox piece by Kainaz Amaria. 

Conversations around diversity are overdue.

Our panelists will offer solutions-based advice in the following areas:

  • Building diverse in-house teams
  • Hiring diverse freelancers
  • Assigning for inclusion
  • Coaching visual journalist in new ways of seeing
  • Making publishing decisions with these considerations
  • Promoting stories in inclusive ways

Please join us for this important conversation.
