Question: How might we support and encourage journalists to examine and address their unconscious bias?

Jennifer Dargan’s curiosity and passion for storytelling led her to Wisconsin Public Radio, first as a superfan, then as an employee. As the Ideas Network assistant director, she is responsible for programming and scheduling, and for ensuring editorial diversity and quality. She has also led the web team and managed on-air fundraising efforts. Previously, she worked in information technology for the Wisconsin State Legislature and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. As a proud Canadian, Dargan is required to love winter sports. She also is passionate about roller derby, listening to public radio, and seeing the world through the eyes of her two children.
