REGION I CONFERENCE

DIVERSITY, INNOVATION & TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT

March 31 – April 1, 2017 – Philadelphia, PA

The National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) will host its 2017 Region 1 Conference at the Annenberg School for Communication on the beautiful campus of the University of Pennsylvania. Hundreds of journalists, communication professionals and students from across the U.S. Northeast are expected to attend the two-day conference.

Titled the “Diversity, Innovation & Technology Summit,” the conference will have a four-pronged approach:

Evolving Innovation
Technical Training
Media Coaching
Community Engagement


In addition to discourse on diversity and inclusion, attendees will actively turn ideas into reality with the opportunity to collectively contribute to new trends and innovations that can invoke change through various entities within the communications sector.


The conference will highlight innovation projects across the country and will feature the various projects happening in Philadelphia i.e., Comcast’s Innovation and Technology Tower, University of Pennsylvania’s Pennovation and the Science Center’s City Sqaure Project.


There will also be a focus on innovative blueprints media companies, colleges and universities have crafted to take their information outlets into and beyond the 21st Century. The conference will also serve as a bridge for community members and leaders as their areas may ultimately be affected by these projects.


The conference weekend will kick off with an opening reception hosted by the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists and will end with an awards ceremony and kick-off mixer for 2018.
