From January 9 to 12, 2020, UBC’s independent student newspaper The Ubyssey will be hosting the event at Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel. This year’s theme is “Empower,” with a series of workshops, panels and roundtables focusing on student journalists’ skills and responsibilities to report on emerging and difficult issues.

Whether it be sexual violence, hate speech, poverty, environment, diversity, disinformation or other subjects, attendees will learn how to report on these stories with care.
