RTDNAC and Elon University are proud to sponsor the first MMJane conference, to be held at Elon at the end of March. Started by Associated Press Journalist Sarah Blake Morgan on Facebook, MMJane has grown into a movement.
MMJane was born out of a need: a space for women in television news to call their own. Four years later, nearly 5,000 female journalists are inspiring and supporting one another daily in this demanding and ever-changing business.
For the first time, we’re partnering with RTDNAC to take the conversation from social media to the classroom with MMJane: The Workshop.
On March 28 and 29 at Elon University in North Carolina, women are invited to hear from some of the best journalists and storytellers in our profession.
From investigative digging and crime beat reporting to severe weather coverage and creative shooting and editing, sessions will push attendees to be better journalists in every sense of the word. Heck, we’re even bringing in a mental health professional and self-defense expert to help us stay sane and safe while reporting.
Whether you’re an MMJ, reporter, anchor or even a student hoping to make the jump, MMJane: The Workshop will inspire and challenge female journalists to tell better and more impactful stories in their own communities.
