SABEWOct2021 – Virtual Conference

Register by Sept. 28 for early-bird rates.

From big industry CEOs to government officials and innovators, SABEW’s annual virtual conference features speakers to help you cover the upended world of business and the ever-changing workplace. Learn how journalists are successfully navigating virtual newsrooms while reporting on the new era of managing and working. In addition to newsmaker and skills sessions, you’ll have opportunities to network and interact with speakers, sponsors and exhibitors for a complete conference experience.

Sessions will focus on:

• How business, the office and employment are changing, including workplace diversity, remote-hybrid work, the rise in employee resignations, automation and innovation.

• The dynamic shifts forged by the pandemic impacting small businesses, travel, commerce, labor, income inequality and retail.

• How to meet the challenges facing the news industry; including doing more with less; and recruiting, retaining and promoting more women and journalists of color in business journalism. You’ll also take home tips to help you remotely develop sources, conduct interviews and cover the business beat.

Newsmakers include: Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton; Randi Weingarten, president, American Federation of Teachers; Robert Isom, president of American Airlines Group and American Airlines; and Isabella Casillas Guzman, SBA administrator.

We know it is a busy time to be a business journalist. All conference sessions are available on-demand to registered attendees so you can access sessions as your workday dictates.
