ONA Insights 2021 opens with an in-depth conversation between Southern California Public Radio’s Ashley Alvarado and the Maynard Institute’s Martin G. Reynolds on implementing newsroom values grounded in accountability, community and racial justice.

Building on SRCCON 2021’s remarkable Replacing Objectivity with Actual Values session and ONA, OpenNews and the Maynard Institute’s Vision25 initiative, this session will explore how news organizations can do the work of defining and living their values.

ONA Insights featured sessions will be recorded and broadcast virtually, and All-Access Pass Holders will have the option to join us for a watch party and facilitated discussion.

This session is designed for:

  • News leaders looking to establish meaningful values for their organizations
  • Managers and publishers who know it’s past time to reject false notions of objectivity
  • Everyone invested in creating news institutions of belonging
