Girls gone global: How to work successfully overseas
Traveling abroad is now easier than ever, but what does it take to get a job overseas? Whether it's for a major global media organization or a local broadcaster, the opportunities to work in foreign countries are there. This panel features journalists who've successfully made the move abroad and have spent years traveling and working for diverse companies on different countries. They'll also talk about how women journalists stay safe and produce responsible and nuanced journalism, from a new continent or just a new neighborhood. They'll tell you how they overcame challenges, how the move strengthened their careers, and how you can take the leap, too.

How to (actually) cover LGBTQ+ stories
This CAMP session is for teaching journalists how to dig into under-reported stories about lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities. The intention is to move beyond terminology primers and dive into the big issues facing people in their everyday lives. The panel's focus will be on identifying issues journalists can explore in their local markets, sharing tips for finding LGBTQ+ sources and data, and discussing what hurdles reporters are likely to face in the process. A take-home sheet with the latest changes to LGBTQ+ style writing and a list of research resources will also be handed out to participants.
