RTDNA Canada Webinar: Journalistic Objectivity, Inclusion, and BIPOC Journalists

Please join us on Wednesday, February 3 for the first in a new series of RTDNA Canada webinars where we seek to get to the heart of issues and meet the challenges of journalism today. 

Journalistic Objectivity, Inclusion, and BIPOC Journalists

The notion of journalistic objectivity underpins the traditional understanding of how to do journalism. As journalists, we are trained to think we can be impartial observers of the truth. But what truth are we reflecting? Whose truth are we reflecting? And is this notion of objectivity – this sense of impartial observation – acting as a barrier to entry for journalists of colour?
