Poynter Events

Poynter events create the opportunity to have thoughtful, civil discourse between journalists and their audiences. Each year, Poynter hosts a speaker series called Community Conversations and the Bowtie Ball, our fundraising gala that honored NBC News anchor Lester Holt in 2018. During these programs, business leaders, media executives, educators, journalists and citizens explore the issues surrounding journalism and the people who produce it. Stay tuned for more details about our future events.
