It's critically important to SEJ to gather evidence on the impact of our work. So we're tracking stories inspired by or informed by our virtual conference in September 2020. The stories don’t have to be about a particular virtual session; they can be based on sources or ideas you got from being at the conference, meet-ups, networking, etc. Please help us to keep SEJ strong and share links, photos, copies of reporting generated or informed by this conference. It's never too late! Send your story links to Cindy MacDonald, SEJ's Web content manager.
