After a year and a half of leading through ongoing crises, senior news executives are staring down a new challenge: Adjusting the alchemy of the media workplace as the U.S. emerges from the pandemic.
Poynter’s 2021 Executive Leadership Summit will provide the space, tools and connections to help you guide your organization forward with strategic insights. This three-day, online gathering — timed as many newsrooms reopen in hybrid or in-person models — is designed for top-level media leaders who will set the tone and vision for the future of their enterprise.
What did you learn about your audience, your staff and yourself during the pandemic and racial reckoning that should inform your strategy moving forward? How can you stave off the “Great Resignation” and keep your newsroom thriving as you bring people back together? How do you align forces to launch the products your audience needs and wants?
Poynter’s leadership experts — Cheryl Carpenter and Butch Ward — will facilitate vigorous discussion around these questions, and draw upon Poynter’s vast network of industry leaders to suggest inventive solutions you can start implementing immediately.
Apply now to be one of 20 participants in Poynter’s first Executive Leadership Summit.
