Making Money Make Sense: Why Business News is Vital to Your Audience
Thank you to everyone who attended Making Money Make Sense: Why Business News is Vital to Your Audience.
About the CNBC Session
How the business world operates – whether technology firms to banks to media giants – today has a greater impact on the lives of everyday Americans than at almost any point in postwar history. From Facebook’s problems balancing privacy and profit to whether the nation’s biggest banks have fairly delivered government relief packages, objectively reporting business news to a general audience is needed to maintain an informed electorate and a wise consumer base.
In our live, interactive panel discussion, CNBC journalists will discuss how they do this and answer questions from young journalists who want to make business news hit home with readers and viewers.
Business journalism reaches nearly every aspect of our jobs as reporters, in one way or another, and knowing how to cover and understand business topics is essential for any journalist. We're very excited to have the support of CNBC at the NLGJA: The Association of LGBTQ Journalists Virtual Convention, and welcome this great slate of panelists to discuss how we can better understand business topics and share them with our audiences.

Comcast NBCUniversal Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Craig Robinson Executive Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer, NBCUniversal
At Comcast NBCUniversal we are deeply committed to diversity and inclusion not only in our workplace, but also in the communities we serve. As we find ourselves in a time of long overdue reflection and engagement against the backdrop of racial injustice, we are dedicated to play an integral role in driving lasting reform in a more equitable and inclusive society.
To that end, we are developing a comprehensive, multi-year plan to distribute $100 million to fight injustice and inequality against any race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, or ability. I am honored to spearhead our social justice efforts across Comcast, NBCUniversal and Sky to build programs, allocate resources and partner with national and local organizations to drive meaningful change against racism and inequality.
We are focused on putting our words into sustainable action that reflects our values, employees and culture. A culture of inclusiveness is a strong indicator of a company’s overall strength and creates an environment where people can do their best work to the benefit of the entire organization. We strive to attract and develop a talented and diverse workforce that will create powerfully engaging content that connects with audiences across the globe.
