A new home for the news community.
ReNEWS sets the stage for vital conversations about socio-cultural challenges: how they affect our newsrooms, and how we report on them. We held our first (virtual) conversation on Thursday, 14 January, 2021. Subscribe to our newsletter to receive a link to the recording.
Our most recent virtual conversation
Our first conversation dealt with culture wars and their impact on the newsroom.
Are we watching freedom of speech slip away in service of political correctness? At what point do journalism and activism overlap? Should journalists live in fear of being canceled for expressing an opposing or different view from their colleagues?
ReNEWS is a global gathering by and for editors united in standing up for the free exchange of information and ideas
