US expert on reporting ethnic diversity returns to NZ

An American authority on reporting the impact of changing demographics will be sharing her observations of the New Zealand news media in the context of her over 30 years’ experience in the United States.

Arlene Morgan, a Philadelphia Enquirer journalist and editor for 31 years and current Associate Dean of Prizes and Programmes at Columbia University’s Journalism School in New York, is in New Zealand as a guest of the New Zealand Journalism Training Organisation (NZJTO) and the Asia New Zealand Foundation.

She will be speaking in Wellington at the Ministry of Social Development on Friday August 29. In her presentation, An International Perspective on Media and Diversity, Arlene Morgan will compare the New Zealand media scene with her experiences in the United States.

Date: Friday 29 August

Time: 2pm to 4pm

The Auditorium, level 3
Bowen State Building
Bowen Street

Arlene will share her thoughts on the New Zealand media scene in the context of her 30+ years experience in journalism in the United States. She will talk about key similarities, key differences, and what media in the two countries can learn from each other.

This promises to be an engaging, interactive and thought-provoking forum on how the media can reflect New Zealand’s changing ethnic landscape.

There is no charge for this forum. As space is limited, please RSVP by Friday 22 August to carmel.peoples002@msd.govt.nz.
