The Center for Investigative Reporting and the News Lab at Google are joining forces for an eight-part event series dedicated to connecting journalists with technologists and designers.
Kristin Belden is the chief of staff for The Center for Investigative Reporting, managing diverse programs, projects and strategic initiatives across the organization. Previously, Belden served as CIR’s director of events, focusing on audience engagement and highlighting the work of Reveal's reporters and producers. She has a background in arts and business, earning her bachelor's degree in art and design, working in art galleries in Spain and San Francisco, and subsequently taking on a role in the media and entertainment sector at McKinsey & Co. During her time at McKinsey, she worked with the group that eventually would launch The Bay Citizen, a nonprofit journalism organization that merged with CIR in 2012. Belden helped build The Bay Citizen's infrastructure and launched its first event series in 2010. Belden is based in Sacramento.
CIR teamed up with design students to reinvent the print newsstand for the digital age. How could we rethink this physical gateway for the news in our communities?
