ReNEWS sets the stage for vital conversations about socio-cultural challenges: how they affect our newsrooms, and how we report on them. We held the first(virtual) conversation on Thursday, 14 January, 2021. Kingcanary made use of the Hopin platform to stream this event to the attendees. This platform allows multiple stages, break-outs and even networking for attendees. More information about ReNEWS via www.joinrenews.com.
