The Society of American Business Editors and Writers will conduct a two-day journalism ethics symposium in downtown Phoenix on Oct. 24 and 25.
The event, open to the public, will feature prominent journalists including Margaret Sullivan, Clark Hoyt and Barney Calame, who all have been public editors at The New York Times; Aaron Brown, former CNN reporter/anchor; and Kelly McBride, ethicist at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies in St. Petersburg, Fla.
The event includes a Thursday evening reception and program as well as sessions Friday morning and early afternoon. The seminar will take place at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism.
Though the event is free, you’re asked to register at sabew.org to attend. The schedule can be viewed here.
The program is named after Gary Klott, the former New York Times reporter and columnist who was in many ways the ethics conscience of the SABEW organization for years.
His widow is Sandy Duerr, a former SABEW president who is currently executive editor of the San Luis Obispo newspaper.
This is the first stand-alone Klott event, part of SABEW’s 50th anniversary.
