In recognition of Black History Month, the Buffalo Niagara Chapter of PRSA is excited to partner with the Buffalo Association of Black Journalists (BABJ) to provide a conversation about some of the diversity challenges which exist within both of our industries. From appealing to today’s youth (i.e., tomorrow’s professionals) to exploring some challenges which remain in the workplace and society, a panel of journalists will share their perspectives as well as things they look for in developing meaningful stories.

Join us Feb. 27 at the new Northland Workforce Training Center, a beacon for Buffalo’s resurgence, helping to ensure that education, labor skills and job opportunities are accessible to all members of the City of Good Neighbors.

 

Panel:

Madison Carter, anchor, WKBW
