Arlene Martinez, a newsletter editor in California and member of Emerging Leaders, has been hosting a weekly “Life Remote, but Not Unplugged” Teams gathering weekly with the Ventura newsroom to check in on how reporters are doing during the coronavirus pandemic. I love seeing that kind of initiative and care for her colleagues. I hop on every once in a while and always feel uplifted after spending some time with them.

Sisi : Great point about needing to be intentional about it. It's ok to ask for ideas on underrepresented communities.

Are there any suggestions for the right questions to ask to move people away from the "ever the victims, rarely the hero" problem?

this is only a bad time to be an intern if we do a bad job as newsroom managers

agreed Sisi what we’ve learned is that lots of great things are happening across our network that lots of people didn’t know about and we’re working on trying to share our successes to people.

On that point, I created a slack channel at Quartz called “props” for highlighting great things people are doing around the newsroom and the organization. It’s surprisingly effective for helping people be seen.

I loved Sisi’s point about small gestures being so meaningful. When she mentioned that sometimes people just want to hear that their managers are concerned about them and their families is so helpful.
