Dear fellow journalist,
Greetings from Ottawa!
It is an honour for me to roll out Canada’s first nation-wide training program aimed specifically at journalists who work with “ethnic” or “multicultural” media organizations.
This accompanying questionnaire will help us determine locations and the specific workshops we will offer. All the information you provide is confidential and will only be used for research and training purposes.
These in-person training sessions build on our successful mentoring program, launched in February, as part of seeking out “new voices”.
Here is some more information that may be helpful:
- This training program will be offered free-of-cost and is funded through a federal government grant
- NCM will offer up to three individual workshops (two hours each) in each location. Topics for the workshops will be chosen based on responses to the questionnaire
- Workshops will most likely be hosted at the nearest journalism school, subject to space availability
- A light lunch and refreshments will be provided to all participants
I’d be more than happy to respond to any questions you may have relating to your participation. And, please do forward the questionnaire to your friends as well.
