What is journalism’s role in monitoring and supporting the health of communities? How should media organizations measure their impact?
These questions were at the heart of The Center for Investigative Reporting’s Dissection: B, a two-day event on media impact with the Center for Collaborative Journalism in Macon, Ga. Building on CIR’s first Dissection last October in Oakland, Calif., we convened a group of journalists, researchers, academics and community members to talk about how we define, track and articulate the impact of our work.
Take a look at how the conversation went below. This is just the latest installment of an ongoing discussion, so we’d love to hear your thoughts. Feel free to share your own approaches to defining and measuring impact in the comments, or tweet us: @CIRonline.
