The inaugural Military Veterans in Journalism convention is scheduled for Oct. 21 and 22, and tickets are free thanks to a generous sponsorship donation.
The convention will feature emerging voices in news media and world-class journalists presenting live information you can’t get anywhere else.
Jake Tapper will give the keynote address, discussing the value of putting veterans to work in America’s newsrooms. New and legacy media organizations will interview veterans at the career fair, trailblazing reporters will showcase their work, and news media visionaries like LaShara Bunting and Jeff Jarvis will participate in panels and present live webinars.
Conventions like this usually cost quite a lot of money to attend, and MVJ initially sold tickets for $40. But last week, JMA Solutions donated enough money so that everyone can come together to celebrate newsroom diversity completely free of charge. The convention is built for networking with professionals, and anyone with an interest in newsroom diversity is welcome to attend.
