Broadcast Journalism, New and Traditional Media
November 11, 2015 - November 14, 2015
CCWA welcomes four visitors from Tajikistan who are exploring how investigative journalism is used as a vehicle for civic engagement and social activism. Participants will meet with prominent local reporters and bloggers, as well as visit organizations devoted to ensuring freedom of the press, to understand how Cleveland ensures that media and community engagement go hand-in-hand. Sessions will also be held with The Plain Dealer, the City of Cleveland Community Relations Board, OpenNEO, and the Civic Commons to illustrate the role of accountability and free speech in media reporting to inform and engage the citizenry.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
