Wish You Were Here 2021 Unconference

Throughout the month of July, NFCB will host events as part of Wish You Were Here. The first hour of each virtual gathering will be a formal presentation available at no cost to anyone who is interested in attending. After a short break, NFCB will then host members-only breakout sessions on the particular topic of interest.

NFCB’s 2021 program will be focused on four areas:

  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion – building on NFCB’s legacy of commitment to accountability;
  • Mis/Disinformation – empowering stations and media organizers to help their audiences identify falsehoods that poison community cohesion;
  • Polarization – equipping stations to take on divides in their communities; and
  • Wellness and Mental Health – supporting you in making the well-being of staff and volunteers a priority.

Session I: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

July 7 at 4 ET
A conversation on diversity, equity and inclusion in communities, followed by breakout gatherings for NFCB member stations on the topic.

Session II: Confronting Dis- & Misinformation

July 13 at 4 ET
A presentation on misinformation, followed by breakout gatherings for NFCB member stations on the topic.

Session III: Wellness and Mental Health

July 15 at 4 ET
A session on wellness and mental health, followed by breakout gatherings for NFCB member stations on the topic.

Session IV: Polarization in Communities

NFCB welcomes your feedback on speakers, breakout facilitators and moderators. Please contact us with your ideas.

Since many stations could be limited in their ability to participate in in-person events, due to financial or health concerns, we’ll convene online this summer with the vision of 2022 allowing us to gather in person once again.
