Our Hour: Are You New to This?

Thursday, January 25, 2024
1:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:00 a.m. Pacific

Like most industries, public media has its own set of norms – and recently, with the introduction of hybrid and virtual work, some of the rules have changed. The Our Hour community is eager to provide clarity to the new class of BIPOC professionals, and gain a clearer understanding of the current challenges that our newcomers are facing.

Join us on Thursday, January 25 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:00 a.m. Pacific for a 90-minute town hall discussion about understanding the ins and outs of public media, with the goal of bridging the gap between veterans and newcomers.

If you are new to the industry (less than 2 years) submit your questions and initial insights about your acclimation by Friday, January 19 to include in our discussion.

If you are a veteran in the industry, please be prepared to share any relevant information or helpful tips that you have gained during your tenure.

Our Hour is for people who identify as People of the Global Majority, BIPOC, biracial or multiracial. We require a space where we can be open and honest with one another about our experiences working in a predominantly white institution. Sharing this town hall with other BIPOC-identifying colleagues will assist in growing our Our Hour community.
