Reporting the U.S. Workplace brings together reporters from across the country for a two-day workshop at the Newmark J-School to learn from top journalists and experts about crucial and current workplace issues. This all-expenses paid program gives participants the tools and knowledge to do both in-depth and daily coverage of the nation’s workforce.
The curriculum emphasizes case studies of standout workplace reporting, key and current controversies, hands-on practical research skills, using government and corporate data, finding stories, overcoming reporting challenges and improving storytelling. The lectures are expected to range from covering labor relations to the way globalization, technology and the climate challenge are disrupting work.

“I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who wants to attend. Structurally put together well, flow was easy to follow and learn from, and everyone was so engaging. Thank you for the great opportunity.”
“Speakers were all interesting and spoke on subjects that were relevant and complementary. Program was clearly very well-conceived – down to the very detailed research tipsheet that was sent out. Couldn’t have been better.”
“I loved this program. Every session was valuable, and the group of attendees was great. I’m going back to my paper and pitching a labor beat.”
