Hi friends -
We wanted to pass along an upcoming event hosted by our friends at the POLITICO Journalism Institute. Details follow - Please note this is NOT an ONADC event, and you will have to RSVP on their website, here: https://thepresspolitics.splashthat.com/
Join POLITICO journalists along with Kristen Welker (NBC), Wesley Lowery (The Washington Post), Shawna Thomas (Vice News), Sonya Ross (The Associated Press) and other D.C.-based journalists for this event, featuring training and networking opportunities to help launch your career — or take it to the next level. This free program is a special project of the POLITICO Journalism Institute, which aims to increase diversity in Washington newsrooms.
The Press & Politics is a free event, including lunch, but registration is required due to limited seating.
RSVP HERE: https://thepresspolitics.splashthat.com/
RSVP'ing on this Meetup will NOT grant you entree.
It's that time of year when journalism interns descend on Washington to learn everything they can about the industry. Come meet your fellow interns — or, if you're a manager, come meet some folks looking for a job!
Join us at The Atlantic for The Product Manager Panel!
Happy summer, ONADC! We're kicking off June with a panel discussion about one of the hottest and most interesting gigs in the online news world: product management.
Join us at The Atlantic as we convene a Q&A with three media leaders in the product space. They'll answer common questions (so.. what is a product manager, anyway? And how do you do...that?), and we'll ask them how they got to this point in their careers. And if you're *really* good, maybe they'll also tell us where they think product is going in the next five years.
The Atlantic is kind enough to sponsor this event and offer food and beverages. So come hungry, thirsty, and ready to ask questions!
Our panelists include:
Stacey Goers, Product Manager at NPR
Anika Gupta, Senior Product Manager at The Atlantic
Heidi Strom-Moon, Product Manager at Slate
We've been invited by McClatchy to attend a screening of "Shock and Awe." The new film, directed by Rob Reiner, is focused on the Knight Ridder journalists who reported that there were no weapons of mass destruction in the leadup to the Iraq invasion.
There are a limited number of seats, and every guest is allowed to take a plus one. Please keep this in mind when you RSVP. Depending on interest, those who are waitlisted may be added to the RSVP list closer to the date.
6:30 p.m. reception
7:30 p.m. screening
After the screening: A panel discussion with Reiner and the journalists portrayed in the film
Hi friends! This month, we've been invited to join Walk With Locals. The group will take us on a photo walk, starting at the Small Planes Coffee (there's free coffee!) and ending at the National Arboretum (so pretty). We'll chat about using your mobile phones for photo and video.
Yes, we know it's not near a metro station. But we hope you come anyway.
If you do plan on coming, please, please, please RSVP at the link below so Small Planes can plan accordingly.
Thanks and hope to see you on May 12!

Whether we like it or not, at some point we've all been involved in newsroom politics: from trying to corral the right people to support your idea, to making the most out of your current situation at your job, to stepping up and learning to find your voice so we can raise the alarm when something doesn't seem right in our workspace (either in the stories we see others cover, questionable situations or conversations that happen in our office, both and more!).
We bring four incredible people from different facets of the media industry to talk about how they navigate their office to complete personal projects, handle office drama, deal with their own identities while working in a predominately white industry and find the strength and support to be the leaders and advocates that they are today.

As part of the pre-conference festivities for #ONA17, ONADC is giving into one of its favorite pastimes and hosting a karaoke night (shoutout to our friends at District Karaoke) to welcome visitors to the lovely city we call home. Come have a drink (cash bar), sing a song (depending on timing, Jess will serenade you) and get pumped for the annual conference (will we end the evening by singing "Don't Stop Believing"? You'll have to come out to see). The bar is less than a mile from the conference hotel.
Note: We're also cosponsoring an event earlier in the evening with several journalism groups. It's just down the street at Tryst. Details and registration here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/crowdsauced-iii-tickets-37896488417

Hello lovely people,
It's been a strange month in D.C., so we thought we'd celebrate the end of it by gathering at Wunder Garten after work on the last day of August to cheers to the end of recess and the beginning of what is shaping up to be a busy fall. Join us, tell us what programming you'd like to see over the next few months and learn about what we've got planned for the upcoming #ONA17 conference (happening here in October!).
See you then.
