−True Crime Stories: Relationships and Responsibilities @ Tribeca Film Center7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
There is no doubt that the “true crime” documentary genre is thriving and that such film and television projects are enjoying unprecedented buzz. Studies show that women are their biggest audience, and broadcasters are taking notice. We will explore this phenomenon through an in-depth conversation with creators who make crime stories that matter.
By the nature of their work, non-fiction storytellers are always considering how to present and represent their subjects through the creative process. But how is that further complicated in the “true crime” space, when the stakes might literally be life or death? Where do they draw the line between journalism and entertainment? A panel of filmmakers and network executives will discuss the brass tacks of telling these stories and examine their ethical boundaries and sense of responsibility in developing relationships with individuals whose lives or livelihoods are on the line.

−Covering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University9:00 am – 5:00 pm
In this free workshop at Vanderbilt University, journalists will look beyond politics toward issues that are likely to affect nearly every community. You will be equipped with knowledge and awareness to cover some of the most pressing issues that are likely to emerge in 2018. Click here to apply today.
The Affordable Health Care Act: Identify what is not working and what could be done to fix those problems.
Cyber Security: How susceptible and prepared are local, county and state governments to cyber attacks? What about the threat to the nation’s electrical grid and pipelines? What do journalists need to know about issues of private cyber security? How do cyber crimes affect business and finance?
Trade Agreements: It appears likely that there will be some changes to NAFTA. What would those changes mean to business, consumers and manufacturers big and small? What needs fixing? Who would benefit and who would be harmed?
Local and State Governments Taking on Global and National Issues:Maybe it is a sign that Washington is in gridlock and somebody has to do something. But local governments are increasingly at the center of what used to be federal business. From climate agreements to environmental regulations and immigration, local governments are where the action is. The Canadian prime minister met with governors about trade agreements and legislators lobbied governors on the Affordable Health Care Act changes.
The Local Effects of Climate Change: EPA says flooding is becoming more frequent along the U.S. coastline as sea level rises. Nearly every site measured has experienced an increase in coastal flooding since the 1950s. Farmers face changing growing seasons and power companies are logging more demand to cool hot buildings and less demand to warm normally cold ones. Pollen seasons are getting longer and the spread of health worries including Lyme disease and West Nile virus are linked to warming temperatures.
Vanderbilt University is excited to partner with Poynter on this project. Participants will attend sessions at the university’s First Amendment Center. In addition, many lectures will be led by Vanderbilt faculty that are world-class researchers and experts on the topics covered by this workshop.+9:00 amCovering the Issues Ahead in Trump’s Second Year: Three Day Workshop @ Vanderbilt University

Because every woman has a story…And many of them have more than one… And many men have a story too… And because Harvey Weinstein isn’t the first or the last… And because we are tired of remaining silent and not being believed or being intimated when we aren’t…We are marching in protest of sexual harassment in the workplace and to send a message to the people who commit it and to those who are complicit by allowing them to do it and covering it up.
So we are gathering together in solidarity and in protest on November 12th. More than that, we are gathering to demand that action be taken, so that every woman or man no matter the industry has the resources and the support to end sexual harassment in the workplace.
Every woman has a “story.” And today those stories end.
Please RSVP so we can get an accurate count for planning purposes and also so we can update you with any changes to the march route and times as event details may be subject to change as we get final approval from the city.

- What does it mean to “future-proof” your business?
- Seeing the challenges ahead, how do you adjust perspective to find the possible opportunities?
- How can the private sector look at challenges in a more holistic way?
- How can a future-looking mindset be applied both internally and externally at your organization?
- How can organizations utilize data to inform their future? And put it to work.
- How to grapple with interconnectivity across business and societal challenges.
