2015 NABJ Media Institute on Education

NABJ is pleased to announce the inaugural Media Institute on Education on April 16, 2015 at the Central Piedmont Community College in Charlotte, NC.

This one-day conference will cover important topics in educational policy, including advancing educational equity and ensuring educational opportunities for poor and minority students, accessing higher education, closing gaps in educational quality, and how supporting communities directly impacts the quality of education our children receive.

U.S. Department of Education Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights Catherine Lhamon and Senior Advisor Delegated Duties of the Deputy Secretary John King will join us for a keynote luncheon.

The NABJ Media Institutes offer quality web seminars and hands-on professional development, entrepreneurial guidance, and technical training at events around the country. The Media Institutes seek to educate and inspire member journalists on topics that directly affect the communities that they serve. These educational sessions are developed to connect journalists with frontline stakeholders, researchers, policy makers, and other journalists to exchange ideas and information about the topics that matter the most.
