How COVID-19 is Reshaping African Journalism

10:00am - 11:15am MST

How has COVID-19 completely reshaped African news and journalism? In this panel, we'll hear from leaders across the continent, featuring two alumni of the US State Department's International Visitor Leadership Program and one alumna of the Edward R. Murrow program. All three panelists spent three weeks in the USA exploring journalism here, taking back home essential lessons learned. The session will be introduced by Sana Abed-Kotob, Deputy Director of the Department of State, Office of International Visitors (OIV).
