SRCCON:WORK will explore how we as a community can make journalism more inclusive, representative, and responsive. This new, two-day event builds on conversations emerging from SRCCON, our hands-on conference that gathers members of the news-code community each year to take on ideas that push newsrooms forward.
Each part of the schedule will begin with a pair of 10-minute talks before breaking into collaborative sessions that dig into their themes. We’ll provide live transcription of the talks as they take place.
SRCCON:WORK is organized around shared experiences and making connections. We’ve organized the schedule so that we can collaborate and build on each others’ ideas.
We’ve built in generous breaks so that you can continue conversations without rushing to the next thing. Lunch as a group provides for space to chill out, spend time with distant friends, or find conversations around emergent topics. Dinner on Thursday evening will give you a chance to connect with people wrestling with the same problems you are.
We want SRCCON:WORK to feel less like a small conference and more like a big cohort. We hope you’ll find new colleagues, champions, collaborators in every space and leave SRCCON:WORK with new ideas and new relationships, so when you take on the work of bringing change to your newsroom, you know you have a community supporting you as you make change happen.
Talks introduce each theme on the schedule, rooting our program in community experience and values, and sending us into collaborative sessions ready to dig in. We’ve asked speakers to challenge how we think, because solutions to systemic problems aren’t going to come from the ways we’ve approached journalism in the past. See the speakers and talks on the SRCCON:WORK schedule.
Sessions at SRCCON events are highly collaborative: an opportunity to compare notes, share skills, and take advantage of every attendee’s expertise. We learn best when we learn from each other, and we want you to share ideas and start projects that live on beyond this event. See the sessions on the SRCCON:WORK schedule.
