About the Seminar
This special Leadership Conference, made possible by a partnership with New America Media, focused on the unique digital needs and challenges facing the nation’s vibrant ethnic media.

It highlighted the best ideas and innovations available to help shape the future of the 10 ethnic news organizations attending. In addition, the two-day onsite was complemented by a series of monthly “virtual classrooms” designed to help the news organization implement new projects developed during the conference.
