5 WAYS TO LOVE YOUR WORK (AND YOUR NEWSROOM) WEBINAR
Join us Wednesday, April 6, 2021, for our webinar, 5 Ways to Love Your Work and Newsroom. Newsrooms are notorious for being (politely) not great places to work. And journalism is hard—demanding long hours against long odds, covering tragic events in foreboding places. Still, we are called to this work because it is so important. There are ways you can make a difference in building better mental health while creating better working conditions for yourself and your newsroom colleagues. From the guy who brought you “No more assholes in the newsroom,” newsroom coach Kevin Benz shares 5 simple answers to “why should I go to work today?,” both inspirational and pragmatic. For those journalists who make the magic happen everyday and for new journalists just entering the field — you might not learn to “love” your newsroom, but you might at least find more mindfulness and enjoy your work a little more.
