Presentation Slides

Presented by ComNetworkCHI and Public Narrative

As “Comms for Good” professionals we have great stories to tell, hearts and minds to influence, and policy and advocacy agendas that will make this world a better place.

  • How can we get journalists to cover our stories?
  • What is the best way to approach them?
  • How can we make a compelling case?
  • How should we adjust our approach as newsrooms evolve in this era of shrinking staffs and hybrid sponsored news opportunities?

Let’s hear directly from the journalists themselves. Join us for this virtual lunch-and-learn program where we will discover the answers to these questions and more!

The Panel:

Public Narrative’s Executive Director Jhmira Alexander will share practical tips for pitching media.

Crain’s Chicago Business Assistant Managing Editor Cassandra West will offer insights to their newsroom.

The TRiiBE’s Editor in Chief Tiffany Walden will explain how to collaborate with multi-platform digital media outlets.
