INN Days brings together journalists, philanthropists, entrepreneurs and civic leaders to help shape the future of public service journalism. With experts and practitioners, we ask: How do we rebuild trust in media? How do we ensure all communities have access to quality, reliable information? How do we create and normalize sustainable business models for news? The answers to these questions are central to the future of American democracy.
INN Days 2021 will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET on June 9 and June 10. View below to see our confirmed sessions, and stay tuned for more to come. If you’d like to be informed of new speakers as they’re announced, subscribe to our weekly newsletter, INNovation.
