Washington, DC, July 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) is excited to announce RTDNA21, a news leadership retreat unlike any you’ve been to before designed to help attendees grow into stronger leaders both within and outside of the newsroom. This one-of-a-kind conference will take place in-person in Denver, Colo. on Sept. 23-24, 2021.
This year’s retreat, themed “The Year of the Team,” is an opportunity for current and aspiring news leaders across the country to reconnect and reflect on the values of community, connection, service and leadership.
“When approaching our annual conference this year, we listened to what our members said they wanted in a post-pandemic world in terms of professional development,” said RTDNA executive director Dan Shelley. “We have developed a curriculum that helps them restore, rejuvenate, refresh and find ways to be more productive, more satisfied, and more well-rounded as they practice the craft of journalism.”
At RTDNA21, news leaders will celebrate the Year of the Team with two major pillars: Representation and Resilience. Participants will engage in a variety of hands-on trainings, community engagement activities and unique events that will immerse conference-goers in the Mile High City.
Alongside fellow news industry leaders, attendees will be able to participate in interactive and immersive sessions taught by subject matter experts on a variety of topics relevant to representation and resilience – including self-care and inclusive language. In addition to connecting with peers, participants will give back and connect with the city of Denver in fun ways. The conference will include an opening night reception at Dazzle Jazz & Blues, fitness classes and a bar tour to facilitate learning in relaxing environments.
“It’s going to be a holistic reset and refresh of everything we do as journalists and everything we are as human beings,” said Shelley.
