Language & Framing

Bring your team together to learn how editorial choices can build narratives that shape, and are shaped by, our communities. We lead interactive workshops (virtual or in person when safe) for newsrooms of all shapes and sizes. We can also customize our flagship workshop to include content areas of interest, like economic mobility, elections, protests and social justice, and more.
