Conversation on Disability Reporting Set for Monday

Conversation on Disability Reporting Set for Monday

Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication is known for inviting top journalists and news executives to the school for discussions and important conversations. These events are open to the public and address a variety of topics relevant to today’s technology-obsessed world.

On this upcoming Monday, the Walter Cronkite School will present it’s last Must See Monday event of Fall 2016, “NCDJ Award: The Best in Disability Reporting.”

Members of the community, along with ASU students, are invited to attend the event and hear from Minneapolis Star Tribune reporter Chris Serres, who was awarded the Katherine Schneider Journalism Award for Excellence in Reporting on Disability.

Along with Kristin Gilger, who serves as the Cronkite Associate Dean and Director of the National Center on Disability and Journalism, Serres will lead a discussion on the importance of covering the disability community and the incredible stories that can be found within this community.

Serres won high praise for his work on “A Matter of Dignity,” an investigative story that revealed how hundreds of Minnesotans with developmental disabilities are neglected in a state system of shelters and workshops, where they are overworked and underpaid.


Journalists can serve as important storytellers to share the truth about the disability community in the United States and encourage hope and change.
The event will be held at the Walter Cronkite School, 555 N. Central Ave. in downtown Phoenix. Introductory remarks will begin at 7 PM.
