Wanda - Thank you for taking time to share your experiences with us. Can you share your thoughts about how today’s newsrooms (especially the leaders in the newsrooms) can be more open to a broader range of people and stories in their communities.
Wanda, having been a top editor, you've been involved in editorial boards, op-ed pages, etc. From what you've seen at The New York Times with the Sen. Cotton op-ed and all that's unfolded from that, how do you analyze this episode? What can we learn from it? What should journalism do differently (or the same) in light of it?
If anyone wishes to be part of the next class of the Gannett Leadership Academy, or wants to nominate a promising young journalist, please message me. In five years of existence, we've retained more than 90 percent of participants -- many of whom now are in top leadership posts around the country
As a black woman, in your career were you ever afraid? What did you do to overcome the fear?
Nominations already are coming in!
There are some newspapers in regions where tribes have been historically misunderstood or where leaders oppose tribes establishing their inherent rights. One of those regions is Rhode Island where you said you began your career. What advice would you give to newsrooms as they work to cover these smaller tribes?

Can you talk about how you responded to readers who were criticizing your coverage of race? Any advice you’d give to journalists covering race/racism in today’s America?
thanks for the advice!
