You can register for the webinar here

Taking care of yourself is not a self-indulgence, it’s a necessity for doing your best work and sustaining the work that you are passionate about. During this time of enormous disruption and uncertainty, journalists are battling on multiple fronts: Keeping up with the two major stories — COVID-19 and racial justice protests — while also fighting for change in their newsrooms and dealing with high levels of stress or even trauma from all of the above.

Come to this session to press pause and reflect on how you’re coping with these situations. You’ll learn some practical tips to take better care of yourself, and to support your colleagues in doing so as well.

Panelists include Mar Cabra of OdiseIA and Acumen; Kim Brice of Grace & Grit; and Benét J. Wilson of The Points Guy and Aviation Queen LLC. Sisi Wei and Ryan Pitts of OpenNews and Denise Malan of IRE will moderate. 

The webinar will also be recorded and posted on the IRE website for those who cannot attend live. The webinar is free and available to members and non-members of IRE.

Time:  June 26, 2020 1 p.m. CT
