What an outstanding panel winding down the #AAJA20 conference. A great conversation about Asians for #BLM - a ton to unpack here and I just wish that white newsroom managers/leaders were listening to this conversation. ((sigh)) ImageImageImageImage
I'll keep saying this - white journalists: it is time to do the work & invest in journalists of color. I'm making it super easy for you right here:
"You don't have to get a masters degree in critical race theory. You can start by examining your own whiteness.
The thing about whiteness is that it gets to be invisible for white people." #AAJA20

THREAD: It's been hard to figure out what recovery is going to be amid this global pandemic.
This week The @washingtonpost kicked off a new section called Road to Recovery, spearheaded by the very talented @renaemerle
Stories from around the newsroom will to focus on what recovery looks like, which might not mean a return to 'normal', rather, a *new* normal.
Like this @RickMaese story about golf - a naturally socially-distant sport that's booming during the pandemic.
Or this great story by @shesdecaille, who spoke to co-parenting families around the country to understand how divorced/separated couples are making visitation, family gatherings and life together work during the pandemic.

#AAJA2020 Best thing I learned from good managers: Practicing empathy - learning what their team's goals are & also what makes them miserable. Good managers want their team to succeed, not just themselves. They're not the loudest voice in the room. - @sclary
#AAJA2020 Bad managers hoard talent. An honest, good manager wants a person on their team to succeed. I've learned so much from bad managers. - @marcelolprince
#AAJA20 The best managers I've had have been coaches. They give you the tools and the skills you need to get the job done. You let folks flourish - you give them the freedom to be who they are, rather than shape them yourself. - @juliachanb
