“Attending the Carole Kneeland project as a first-year news manager was a transformative experience. I anticipated gaining valuable skills to make our newsroom more effective and efficient. However, what surprised me was the emphasis on personal development. The program recognized the importance of combining work and life development, equipping me to excel as a newsroom leader and become a better manager, colleague, and person. The adaptability and systems I learned during the program have become a critical asset in the fast-paced world of news. Kneeland exceeded my expectations, setting a high bar and providing a thought-provoking deep dive into the issues news leaders and journalists face. It’s more than just a training program; it’s an inspiration that ignites positive change.”
